A Sketchy Graduation

Happy Wednesday everyone - it was rainy and cool here(around 60) all day with more of the same for the next two days - but then it's supposed to be 88 and sunny on Saturday - Yay!

I made this card for today's Sketch Challenge on Split Coast. This is the sketch we were to use.

A friend at work asked me to make a 2 graduation cards for her. Her niece, Erin, is graduating from U Mass Boston and she needed a card for Erin's parents to give her as well as a card for herself. Hopefully we have the correct school colors on these!

I wanted to use my Just Rite Monogram stamps to personalize it and today's sketch with the circle and lines worked out perfectly. The ribbon is navy although it looks black in the picture.
Here is the sentiment on the inside of the card.

Here is the 2nd card I made using the same colors but a different sketch.

On this card I used a Spellbinders tag die for the sentiment and attached it to the dotted ribbon with foam dimensionals. I also added ribbon under the Nestability circles. I used the Distressed Stripes Cuttlebug folder on the white panel.

Here is the sentiment on the inside of this card.
