Dreams Graduation card

Happy Monday!
Between dusting and washing some window blinds and a grocery run this afternoon, I was able to carve out some time for the current Time Out challenge.  they are looking for black and white with the addition of a single colour.  As you may or may not know, the University of Texas at Austin has a huge presence here (52,000 + students) and the Co-Op grocery store has asked again this year for graduation cards.  I know I should be working on Mother's Day cards as that date is before the graduation date, but the Time Out challenge just seemed a perfect challenge for me to kick start the grad cards.  The UT colour is "burnt orange".  I used SU pumpkin ink and more mustard grosgrain ribbon on this card for the colour part.  The little ribbon slider tag die is Memory Box and the sentiments and dream frame are PTI from the "fillable frames #3" stamp set.  I stamped the Follow your Dreams 3 times in a zig zag or chevron style from the dream cloud for a little different sentiment treatment.  The little mortarboard, (see definition here), is from PTI.   
I always call this a graduation cap :)))  I used the current 
CAS(E) this Sketch #115 as my starting point, although my top left corner does not quite do justice!  

Thanks for stopping by and I hope that all is well!
