Look Whoo's Graduating.....{PKS Sketch Challenge}

 Good Morning  everyone!
 Can you believe it is June already?
OMG I can not get over how FAST the months are flying by!!

Which brings us to another Peachy Keen Stamps Sketch challenge! 
Remember these challenges run for about 2 weeks so there is plenty of time to play along with us!!

Here is the new sketch...
And here is my take on it!

With graduation season upon us, and myself having a 5th grader moving up to the middle school, I thought using the sketch to make a graduation card would be perfect.
I love the Peachy Keen Stamp set~ Smartie the Owl, such a cute owl image, adorable eyes and great matching sentiments. 
So for my card, I used an SVG Cutting Files cut~ Graduation Owl and stamped one of the sets of eyes in place of the cut. Once he was all assembled, I set him aside to put the rest of my card together.
Following the sketch, I used designer papers from Doodlebug Designs~ The Graduate and My Creative Time~ Stitched 3x4 Journal Die as well as the new My Creative Time~Bunch of Fun Circles die for the ribbon in which my owl sits. The sentiment is also from the PKS~ Smartie the Owl set which I stamped onto the journal die cut. I embellished my card using some glittery enamel dots and tied a cute mini bow onto the graduation hat using some Totally White Trendy Twine.

I hope you have enjoyed my card and take on the sketch. I would LOVE to see you play along with the new challenge!!
You can find out all the details by heading over to the Peachy Keen Blog as well as see the inspiration from the other DT members!
