My Sketch World May Card Sketch Reveal

Yesterday was reveal day for the May card sketch over at My Sketch World and this is Lucy's sketch:
I needed a few graduation cards this year so I decided to use this sketch to get me started on my card.  My cousin's daughter Maddie graduated from Syracuse and their colors are blue and orange, so I decided to go with those colors and thought that this owl paper graduation paper from Doodlebug was too cute to pass by.  This is the card that I made. 
Supplies used:
American Craft cardstock
Doodlebug Cap & Gown paper and stickers
Ranger Tim Holtz distressing ink - faded jeans
Creative Memories Hexagon punch
EK Border punch
Thanks for stopping by.  I will be back soon with some more graduation cards.

Karen's Spring Shape Challenge at MSW Forum

Karen is hosting a challenge for the Spring Fling at the MSW Forum and this is the card that I made.  I thought that all the pinks in this paper line reminded me of Spring.  We got my Silhoutte Cameo out last week and Kristi started figuring it out and has cut quite a few things in the past week or so.  I had not really had the chance to give it a try, but decided to try it for this card.  I cut the Happy Birthday with it and really liked the way it cut.  I think that you will be seeing a lot more this cut with it.

Products Used
My Minds Eye Collectable "Unforgettable"
American Crafts Cardstock
Silhouette Cameo Happy Birthday cutout
Color Box Chestnut Roan chalk
