Bloggers Challenge - Sketch Challenge

Happy Bloggers Challenge Friday!  This week I gave the Bloggers Challenge members a sketch as inspiration in creating their cards for today.  If you'd like to play along, feel free to leave a direct link in the comments to your creation, I'd love to see what you created.

As you can see I rotated the sketch, and added a sentiment panel.  All images are from Kitchen Sink Stamps 3 Step Graduation set.  I stamped the diploma's in the same maner as the card posted here.  The Black background panel was done with the Sanded Core'dinations Technique, using Black Magic Core'dinations with a Red core.

Details:
Stamps - Kitchen Sink Stamps 3 Step Graduation
Ink - Memento Rich Cocoa, Desert Sand, Lady Bug, Ranger Black Archival
Card Stock - Black, White, Red, Core'dinations Black Magic
Other - DuraSand Block, Big Shot, Cuttlebug Numbers Embossing Folder, SAMJ
