Supplies Used:

Hi Everyone,

Today's card is for the Graduate 2011. I was in the mood to make a graduation card, although I don't really have anyone to give it to. My youngest sister graduated High School last year and it'll be while before she graduates again.

I used this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch #116 by Karen Giron from The Sweetest Thing.

The graduation cap is from the Locker Talk cartridge cut at 1". I cut it out twice - once in black and once in yellow for the tassle. I added a some clear rhinestone to the "knot" of the tassle.  

The scalloped frame is from the Sketch Your Imagination Cartridge. I used Design Studio to enlarge it to the size I needed as well as hide the inside frame of the shape.

The sentiment is from this week's Sentimental Sundays Challenge #54 - Anything Goes freebie by Raindrop Echo Designs.

For the inside of the card, I simply rotated the sketch 180°.



5/16/11 - Thanks for blogger issues, this card didn't go up in time for the challenge deadlines.


  1. Very nice take on the sketch! I like how you made the sentiment large and the cap the accent. Looks great!
