A Vintage Graduation

It's Friday and it's Fabulous and there's another freebie over at Sugar Creek Hollow! I'm so glad you stopped by today to see my design team card for Sugar Creek Hollow's Fabulous Friday. Our design team was challeged to make a card using our favorite Sugar Creek Hollow image. That's a pretty tough assignment - tough because there are SO many great images in the store. I chose the vintage graduation set from the May release that I have been itching to make a card with. Do you believe I made a card with no sponged or ripped up edges? I wanted it to look very sharp and elegant. I love the way this turned out. I debated quite awhile about putting the flower on it. On one hand, I liked the stark black and white but part of me wanted to throw a little whimsey in so I went with the flower.

For this card I used Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge. It's a new challenge for me - haven't played in that one yet. But I was looking to crank up my mojo with a sketch and I thought this one worked really well with the image. I used the Stars EF from Cuttlebug because anyone who graduates is a star! But I wanted vintage as well so I used the Textile EF for the top layer. The DP is Designer Digitals, printed on my home computer. I used the SU scallop border punch and also a Spellbinders frame die which I stenciled and trimmed to use only a portion of the bottom piece. I made the flower out of crepe paper and the leaves are a Martha punch.

Now I hope you will stop by the rest of the teams' blogs to see what their favorite Sugar Creek Hollow image is. I was super impressed with the work the DT did this week!! And don't forget to stop by the store and pick up your Friday Freebie!
