Happy Grad

My card today is for two challenges this week: the sketch challenge at Tuesday Morning Sketches and the cupcake challenge at Cupcake Inspirations. As soon as I saw the TMS sketch, I knew I wanted to make a grad card with stars surrounding the sentiment. The cupcake lady bug colors were perfect for my grad card.  I like the result. Here are the TMS and Cupcake Inspiration photos.

And here's my grad card.

First I stamped DRS Designs' woven plaid background with black and red inks on white CS, layered it on black and then attached it to the white card base. The sentiment was stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink on white, die cut and attached to a black scalloped circle. I stamped the sentiment again on red CS, fussy cut the cap and glued it into place. A tiny black brad was added to the top. Once the sentiment was attached with foam adhesive for dimension, the stars were added. Some red enamel dots complete the look.

I know I'm going to need several more grad cards and I just might do more in this sketch with different colors. It's a fun sketch to work with.

Thanks for stopping by,
