Why do I always leave everything to the last minute? Oh yeah, I'm a procrastinator. Le sigh. I really wanted to join in at CAS(E) This Sketch challenge but was having trouble coming up with something. Well, my nephew graduated from highschool this month and I needed to make a card for him and suddenly a lightbulb went off in my head. Scared the heck out of the hamster! LOL! Anyway, here's the great sketch....
And here's what I came up with....
Aren't those arms hilarious? It's such an iconic image the throwing of the grad caps. I had to get creative to get those arms too. They are from a set by Recollections and those are fairy arms! The set has two fairies some sentiments, flowers and flourishes. I'm sure they never figured it would be used in this fashion. :-). Anyway, the grad caps are also by recollections given to me by a friend. The sentiment is by Fiskars. I love how this turned out. I hope my nephew does too. :-)
I've got another card to share but that'll be another post. Have a fabulous morning!
I love the arms throwing their caps in the air...such a fun card!ReplyDelete
I'm SO SO glad someone did this. I was toying with the idea of graduation caps when I made my card but I just couldn't get it worked out right. Yours is PERFECT!ReplyDelete
