BASIC GRAY GREAT GRADS

Boy, have I been struggling with my mojo this week! You might have thought that I had forgotten how to stamp! Last night, it all came back to me when I went to work with this week's Sketch Challenge #221 on SCS. My daughter Allie graduates from high school in May so I need to get busy with graduation cards for her friends. This is the first graduation card of many.

This card uses two stamp sets - Great Grads and Congrats (Sale-a-bration '09). The designer paper is from Urban Oasis and Patterns DP Pack II (Level One Hostess). The "grad" is stamped in Basic Gray ... the cap is stamped in Jet Black Staz-On, cut out, and popped up on Stampin' Dimensionals.

What a fantastic graduation card! I hope your mojo returns soon, and with cards like this and the one you did for Kristina's challenge, you'll be back in the groove in no time at all.
