She Believed

My daughter is an EMT and working towards becoming a paramedic. She is in a program at a local college which is a bridge program to help EMTs become paramedics. There are three levels to the program, and she just completed the first level! Upon completion of the third and final level, she will be guaranteed a spot in the paramedic program. She was one of seven, from a group of 200, who completed the first level.

There was a special pinning ceremony, and her dad had the honor of placing the pin on her. To say we are proud of our daughter is an understatement! We know that she can accomplish whatever she puts her mind to. She's proven it!!!

This is the card I made to give her that evening:
Stamps - Feel Goods, Gorgeous Grunge
Cardstock - Basic Black, Elegant Eggplant, Whisper White
Ink - Elegant Eggplant
Accessories - Rhinestones
