Congrats Grad!

It is time for another The Three Musketeers post. We are ready to showcase the card we all created with the image that I sent for May--for Card #69!  That means we nearing the end of year #5--can you believe that?  All three of us sure have enjoyed the challenges every month and we hope that it continues for a long time!  Jeanette is up next for the June challenge.  Be sure to come back to see what we create!  

For our card this month, I sent out this sweet graduation image from Taylored Expressions called Matchy-Matchy Grad!  I also included some coordinating sentiments.  This is a perfect image for this time of year as I know we all know someone who is graduating--even though there are no special ceremonies this year...........................  I colored image with my Copic Sketch Markers. I then used my Taylored Expression Diagonal Stripes Cutting Plate for the first time.  I cut sections from different sheets of the Doodlebug 6x6 The Graduates patterned paper and the outline from Smokey Slate.  It might be a bit of a busy background by using different patterns. I layered the sentiment with some ovals and added silver cord behind.  I hope Jeanette and Kelly along with you enjoy my card!

Here is the inside of my card, with another of the sentiments:

Please check out the other Musketeer's cards.  Here is the link to Jeanette's blog along with Kelly's blog.  I am sure you will not be disappointed and will see a couple of great cards!  They may post today or tomorrow, so be sure to check out their blogs for their card!   As I mentioned, Jeanette is up for our June challenge, so please come back!

What a great card Barb - the horizontal stripes calm the busy background enough that the eye is not overwhelmed. Love that sweet owk.
Stay safe
