Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge #49

Hello, I'm back with another stab at the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge for this week...and this time I used all my wonderful Waltzingmouse goodies instead of forgetting them like a ninny last week! :) I'm anxiously awaiting my new Doily sets as well as a cool Text-It background set and another wonderful sentiment set (Fancy Phrases) to arrive in the mail any day now...then I'll have even more selection to choose from each week for my sketch challenge card! Yay!

Here is this week's sketch:

I needed another graduation card, but how to use my WM stamps effectively for a graduation card, being that I have no graduation sentiments? Well, lucky for me, I have the awesome Words of Wisdom set, which has such great encouragement-type sentiments, and the one from Henry Ford seemed to fit perfectly. I had to rotate the sketch to make it work, but I think it all came out dandy!


I don't know if it can be seen very well, but in addition to the background stamp on the white from Pic-Nic Patterns, I also stamped the scalloped edge with a Pic-Nic Patterns stamp to give it a bit more interest.

That's it for this week! Happy Graduation to all the upcoming grads!
