Celebrate...WMSC100 47

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, June 2, 2012 @ 12:13 AM | ,

Hi there! Hope you are all having a great weekend! I'm here today celebrating the 100th Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge! LOTS of exciting things happening so be sure to visit the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge blog for COMPLETE details!
I made a Graduation card for Emily, Connor's girlfriend who recently graduated from High School. I combined images from three various stamp sets. The fun polka dot background was  stamped using a stamp from Off Beat Backgrounds,
 the sentiment is from Free Spirit - Sentiments and the graduation cap image is from Free Spirit - Boy. I finished off the card with a double bow and a rolled rose made using a die from Spellbinders Bitty Blossoms.
Shown below is a photo featuring sweet Emily and dear Connor that was taken on graduation night :)
 For color inspiration, I played along with The Play Date Cafe:
Many thanks for visiting! Please be sure to visit the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge blog for some awesome inspiration and COMPLETE details regarding the 100th sketch celebration!
Be Sweet :)
