Paper Smooches SPARKS Dec. Designer Drafts

Hello, friends:}

Today we start another weekly challenge over at Paper Smooches SPARKS blog!! This week we are sharing a DESIGNER DRAFT challenge. 

This week we are inspired by the following sketch:
**Sentiments can be placed anywhere on the sketch.

My card is very simple-- based on the sketch as well as THIS layout by Janna Werner. LOVE her style! And I thought this layout would be perfect for this sketch. I used the diag design for the left panel, and the vellum and little note as the two center panels. I did move the green strip down and used alphas. So I think I followed this sketch.... maybe 80%! LOL!  

I created a graduation card for someone that should be graduating from college in May! I can't wait to share who that is:) I used the Hey Boy paper collection by Basic Grey along with vellum paper and washi tape. I stamped the male image from the Paper Smooches Off the Charts on the reverse side of the vellum to create a soft gray design. I also used the sentiment from the PS Chart Topper set. LOOOOOOVE how simple this card is! Thanks for the inspiration, Janna;)

What a PERFECT grad card (I've already been asked to make some; hard to believe!), and I may be borrowing your idea here, if I may! From the images, to the "great job" arrow, to the papers (more swooning!), so the layout: absolutely awesome! Whoever the 'mystery' recipient is, I know he'll LOVE x LOVE it, as do I. Big LOVE! My dear Savannah - wishing you the most Merry Christmas ever! You've been such a blessing! May your day be filled with peace, joy and abundance, sharing time with the people you LOVE, doing the things you LOVE! Blessings, to you and yours! Hugs~c
