Sunshine & Buttons Graduate

My local high school colors are black, white and gold. Hence the numerous graduation cards I've posted in that theme. I used several challenges to inspire me for this card (Please see the Ins and Outs for links to the challenge websites.)
The Sketch
This is from House Mouse & Friends. I'm slowly working through their challenges and trying to play 'catch up'
Color Challenge
Black & White & 1 Bold Bright (I used Yo-Yo Yellow)
Four Corners (keep embellishments in the corners only)
My Card
Image Detail
I added Lemon Spica along the edges but couldn't get them to show up in the card. I tried to leave my mouse a shade of grey (to stick true to the color challenge), be he looked a bit anemic. I decided he needed a 'bit' of color on his skin and nose.

I'm usually 'helped' quite a bit when crafting. Our youngest two have decided the perfect napping spot while Mom is stamping is between her back and the chair. When I work in the living room I sit in the recliner and use a small table. I stuck a few pillows behind me to support my back; but as you can see the only thing they really support is Dahlia (we call her Dolly for short).


  1. Love the cute kitty photo! And your card is fun, love the different shape you used vs. a circle!

  2. GREAT your choice of colors and what a sweet cat :)


Thanks for stopping! I am so inspired by the amazing crafty blogs out there and honored you took the time to visit my little corner of the world.
