Retro Sketch Card #118

Happy Hump Day!! I hope everyone's Wednesday was as great as mine.

Today was the beginning of exams. Four more days until summer vacation. Whoop!!!

Today I am entering the Retro Sketch #118 Challenge. In honor of the end of school, I created a simple graduation card.

The arrow stamps and the sentiment are from the "Graduation" set by TPC Studio that I got on sale last year. I first stamped the arrows in sapphire pigment ink and then punched them out with a 1" circle punch. I die cut and stamped the banner using Mama Elephants new "Sweet Savanna" set.

I used foam adhesive on the arrows to pop them off the page and then used a Wink of Stella clear pen to give them a little sparkle.

I used a die cuts and stamps from PTI to decorate the inside. I had both die cuts on my desk already from a previous project which helped make this an easy card.

I am kind of graduation card mode this week as all the seniors will be graduating next Monday. I am going to miss the class of 2014. They are such a great group of kids.

Here is the sketch that was my inspiration:

I thank you for looking at my project. I hope you have a fabulous night!!
