For the Grad

Stamps: Graduation Hanna; Sentiment retired SU!
Paper: Doodlebug
Other: 1" grosgrain; Kaiser pearls;
Card Measures 5x7


Hello Friends! Welcome to another 3 Clovers Thursday! Thanks for coming by today!

Remember I mentioned the other day that Hanna Stamps released a Hanna Graduation set and a Graduation Riley this month? Here's my first card! I love this set!!! There is a Hanna and a "Guy" too. Plus a few other related stamps including a big honkin' CONGRATULATIONS! LOL! Anyhooo...this set is appropriate for Girls and Guys...High School, college and "older" grads too.

I thought this would be perfect for today's challenge. Although I cheated the tiniest bit by adding the hair and skin colors. My choices were wide open as to what 3rd color I could choose....just depending on the School Colors. Truthfully, I chose the red because that is what color wide grosgrain I had. :)

I always like the combo of black and white and one more color. It always lends a sleek and sophisticated look. I hope that you will join us this for this weeks challenge! You just never know when it will be worth your while! ;)

Have a Spectacular Thursday!
