"The Graduate" @ Red Carpet Studio

This week's card challenge at Red Carpet Studio is inspired by "The Graduate"........... so we want you to create a Graduation card.



I decided on a blackboard technique card.... the school theme coming through.  The stamps are from a set by Couture Creations which I white embossed on the black card. I smudged some white ink on the panel.  I stamped the heart in pink and cut it out and added to the panel.  I added the sentiment with my computer onto some patterned paper.  

And I have had some BIG news today..... I won the entire NEW EDITION stamps from Penny Black..... how exciting is that.  I 'm over the moon!!!!!  Hubby, though, no so!  He said I have too many stamps already - spoil sport.

Thanks for stopping by today
