Celebrate Graduation

Holy mackerel, I can't believe it's been two weeks since I've posted.  How time flies.  We have two graduation parties to attend this weekend, so I worked on a card for the first one that's this afternoon.   I've been wanting to join in with the Dynamic Duos, this week the colors are Real Red and Island Indigo.   I did have to adapt them using Close to My Heart Colors, so I used Cranberry and Pacifica, they were as close as I could get.  I used this week's Mojo Monday sketch for the blue print:

I opted to go square with it.  This week the challenge at the 2 Sisters Challenge Blog is "Inside & Out", so I did something that I'm starting to do more of with my cards, decorating the inside.  Here's what this one looks like:

I'm also going to add this to this weeks 52 Card Pickup at the Old Back Porch.

  6. Hi Stacy! Such a fun card you have the awesome texture from the burlap! I love a decorated "inside" of a card, as well...I think it is a great way to keep the fun going from the front of the card. So glad you joined us this week at Dyanamic Duos!
