Another graduation card (my second today!).  This one is for my niece.  And if her mother sees it, I hope she doesn't let her see it until she receives it.  LOL I did that once with my daughter's birthday card.  Didn't even think about that until she called me laughing about it.

The colors on her announcement were blue and silver so I went with those.  My brushed silver cardstock looks gray in the pic.  I also used some silver embossing powder on the arrow in the sentiment and put it on dimensionals.  I also used this card for the sketch challenge at Create with Connie and Mary Summer Edition.  I needed my middle panel to be wider rather than taller so I turned the sketch on it's side.

Thanks for looking!

I love the graduation hat placement! It looks like it was tossed in the air. You have done a fabulous job with the sketch. I am so glad you joined the Saturday Challenge this week at CCMC.

Hello Carol.
I just wanted to thank you for stopping by my Blog and for being sweet enough to leave a comment. I took that opportunity to have a peek at your Blog & I have to say that I love your scrapbooking. We're not fortunate enough to have digi scrapping from SU here in Australia but hopefully one day.
Have a great weekend.
