Imaginisce's May Sketch & Paper Poppy NSD Celebration

Happy National Scrapbooking Day to you!

Since today is the first of the month, Imaginisce has posted another sketch challenge. The sketch is by Robyn Schaub, and it is scrumptious!





I used a portion of the sketch to create a graduation card for my cousin using the To Love and Cherish line. The formality of the black and white papers and embellishments reminded me of the colors of graduation gowns and diploma covers.




Be sure to go to Imaginisce's blog HERE and to each of the designers' blogs to leave comments. Each comment you leave is another chance to win a fabulous Imaginisce prize pack! Good luck.




Also be sure to pop over to The Paper Poppy Kit Co. blog HERE. We are celebrating National Scrapbooking Day with a host of games, challenges, and prizes. This is my challenge layout . . . it's a color challenge. That's all I'll say. You'll have to go to the blog. :)



There is also a fabulous sale going on! Hope to see you there.
