Way to Go, Graduate!

     I'm having to do several graduation cards this year.  There's a group of ladies at a nearby Senior Center (where I donate many of my cards) who have asked about graduation cards for their grandkids and even twin nephews in one case.  I've been trying to find out what the school colors are for each of our middle and high schools in my town but so far, I only know the colors for one school.


I took my sketch from the challenge at I {heart} Sketches
and the image also belongs to From the Heart Stamps.


     I had forgotten how much I love red and yellow as a color combo on cards but this is definitely a favorite of mine.  I colored this image with ProMarkers and a gold paint pen.  I cut the image and the red mat with my newest die set from Gina Marie.  The polka dot triangle was cut with another Gina Marie die, then trimmed to fit the card corner.

     I added one tiny, red, bow and left it rather CAS.  I don't know if this card is going to a girl or a boy so I wanted it to be appropriate for either one.

     Challenges:
Colour Crazy Craft
Crafting from the Heart
Cutie Pie
Get Creative
Jo's Scrap Shack
Pattie's Creations
Scrapper's Delights
Send a Smile 4 Kids
Simon Says Stamp

     That's all I have for today but I'll be back tomorrow with another DT card for QKR Stampede so be sure to stop by.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
