The Graduate

Michele over at Crafts4Eternity has a really great challenge on offer this week, I just loved using the fab sketch and the recipe is use a film title and use some corrugated cardboard. The prize this week is a choice of 3 digi stamps! You can see all the digi stamps on offer here. Well I hope you can all guess what my film is.....The Graduate. When I showed this to my hubby and asked him what film it reminded him of he hadn't a clue, so I said just say what you see, he replied A mouse with a gown on! lol Glad I know some lovely crafters who will hopefully see this straight away lol. I used red card and punched holes along it to give a film effect. I embossed a piece of white card with my script folder. I found the off white corrugated card in my stash. The image is coloured with copics and promarkers and I used white peel offs for the sentiment. I hope you all get a chance to play this week. I am entering this into these challenges:

1. Paperplay - no patterned paper
2. Rosie-Dees - red and white
3. Paper sundaes - no people
4. Kaboodle - embossing
5. Cupcake Craft Challenge - red and white
