Dontcha LOVE it when you have NO idea what you are going to do for a challenge and you totally outdo yourself?? That's what happened today! The 365 challenge for today was to make a graduation card. Since I had already made the only two that I need this year, I was trying to think creatively. THEN I remembered that my son would actually be "graduating" from Pre-K. I went in search of a great image and found this stamp that I havent really gotten much use out of. I then switched up patterned papers several times before settling on these two patterns. I used the 2 sketches for you sketch as a base but didnt follow it so I am not submitting the card for that challenge. I made the grad hat from black paper, a brad, and an altered piece of fiber. I used rubons that are AGES old for my sentiment and that's about it. I really LOVE this card though!
HERE'S MY CARD:
