Happy Graduation

A graduation card today - first I've made and probably the only one any time soon! My sister has recently passed her course to become a Mental Health Nurse :-) and so this is for her.

I folded the card myself and added the punched border along the front. Then added the ribbon from my stash (actually think it came wrapped around some PJ's last christmas *g*) and used a digital image from Birds Cards, resized several times and coloured with promarkers - black, slate and ruby. The sentiment is from stampin' up. Added a few gems to finish and made a tag to match.

I used Retro Sketches #9:

Filled in the top line from Delicious Doodles Challenge #18 - Bingo (Gems, Ribbon, Punches)

And I'm also submitting too:
- 2 Sister Challenge Blog #89 - Colour Challenge (Black, White and a Hint of 1 other Colour - I used red.)
- Pollycraft Monday #138 - Matching Card and Tag


  1. Great idea to use the sketch to create a Graduation card! The hats look just like they do when they toss them in the air at the end of the ceremony! Really FUN! So glad you played RetroSketches this week!

  2. Beautiful and very untraditional! Thanks for joining us this week at 2 Sisters Challenge!
