Congratulations!!

It's the time of year for lots of graduations over here in the States and it won't be long before it's Degree Day for many university students in the UK too.  With that in mind, our challenge this week for the Copics/Promarker group at The Outlawz is "Congratulations" - with an option to do a Graduation congrats theme.  Don't forget that we are being sponsored by Krista Smith (Saturated Canary) so there's even more incentive to join in!

I chose to do a general congrats card and I used another image from the fabulous Mayzy Art - you really should check out her shop as she has some great digis! 


I've been having a spate of doing fairly simple cards lately - sometimes I get overwhelmed by where to place embellishments and I just need to put my CAS head on and step away from the card!  The background to this was done using several free photoshop brushes and then I layered the copic coloured image on top and just added the (very old) chipboard photo corners - nice and simple!


Why not check out the rest of the DT team's wonderful creations over at The Outlawz and don't forget about the big party coming up there ........2000 members, wow!!  (see the blinkie at the top right of my blog).


I would like to put this in for the following challenges -

Thanks for stopping to take a look :)
