SCH Fab Friday--It's Graduation Day!!

Happy Graduation Day...well maybe someone is graduating today somewhere! It's a Fab Friday at Sugar Creek Hollow, and we have a challenge for you today!! We had a color combination...Soft Sky, Blue Bayou, Very Vanilla, and Chocolate Chip. Those were some oldies, but goodies! I love these two blues, and I still pull them out of my arsenal at times!
The digital stamp that I used is part of a set called Vintage Graduation from Sugar Creek Hollow, and it is wonderful. It is very versatile! And, it is only $5 for three digital stamps! You can't beat that!! And, I love digital stamps for their instant gratification...being that I am a last minute stamper!
I also used Mercy Kerin's sketch from this week (MTSC73), and I really feel that it fit this image!! I love when things all work together!! That is amazing!!

Stamps: Vintage Graduation by Sugar Creek Hollow
Paper: Soft Sky and Blue Bayou CS and DSP; Very Vanilla and

Very nice!!! I wish I had spotted this earlier.....I had to make a graduation card for a challenge awhile back and I drew a blank. I didn't have any graduation type stamps so I ended up die cutting 2010 out of pattern paper and adding it to the front of my card.
