Double Duty.....Lunchtime & Bloggers' Challenges


This past Monday's sketch for MaryJo's Lunchtime Sketch Challenge was a little out of my comfort zone. I always have difficulty working with doubles......using an odd number of anything always seems more balanced and pleasing to me. (I've watched a lot of those designer shows on HGTV!!) But this week's Bloggers' Challenge was a Graduation theme and when I began to work on that idea, MJ's sketch came to mind and the playing began!!
Again, very little stamping.....just the greeting, which has been retired. I like to keep a lot of my word stamp sets even after they are no longer in the catalog....so I have a lot of word sets......you never know when they'll come in handy!! Lots of punching done on this card, which was great fun to make! Oh!....you can see MJ's original sketch...and the other players here.
Stamps: All Year Cheer 1
Inks: White Craft
CS: Whisper White, Brilliant Blue, YoYo Yellow, Real Red
Misc: Large & Small Star Punches, Scallop Square Punch, Photo Corner Punch (for making the "ribbon" ends on the greeting), Circle Scissor Cutter, Brilliant Blue Marker, 1/2" Red Stripped Grosgrain Ribbon, Red Star Brads (from Making Memories), Wavy Border Punch (EK Success), White Embossing Powder
NOTE: ALL materials used to make this card are from SU, except where noted.
As always, I'm so glad you were able to stop by and visit! Hope you'll take a few minutes and visit the other bloggers! (Click on the Bloggers' Challenge logo in the right-hand column.)
