Congratulations Graduate


We've a brilliant sketch this week on Everybody Art Challenge, I do think it a bit spooky that I decided to make this card with masculine colours and then hear about Christopher having just made the perfect card for him.
The papers are again Boom Boom Clap which are a download from Sweet Shoppe Designs, the graduate hedgie is a slapstick stamps from Penny Black but the sentiments are Woodware. I had to have a bit of ribbon somewhere and my little brads are actually cardstock punched out using a 1/4 inch circle punch, then embossed before sticking them down with a tiny blob of silicone glue.
I've not been in my craftroom for three days so I'm itching to get in there.
