Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge #560 // Retro Rubber Challenge #159

Today's card was inspired by the sketch challenge from Mojo Monday.  The current sketch ( #mojomonday560 ) is a slimline card. I love that Julee gives us the measurements...makes cutting and creating a breeze!!  My mom asked for a graduation card made is the school colors of the graduate...this sketch was perfect for pulling that together for her.  Since the stamp I used for this card came out in 2012, this card is also being entered in the Retro Rubber Challenge ( #rrcb159 ).  Their current challenge is an "anything goes" challenge.  This card also works for the Freshly Made Sketches challenge to create a slim line card.
