The challenge theme at International Art and Soul was set by DT member Debbie and is 'Graduation'.

I used a small 6x6 Crafts UK card blank. The base mat was bottle green card from W H Smith and on top of that I added a small sheet of Simply Cards & Papercraft checked paper. Before fixing the base mat to the actual card blank I added a strip of dark green satin ribbon across the bottom section of the mat. I've had the ribbon so long I'm not sure where I bought this one. The graduation stamp is from a sheet of Clear on Clear (?) stamps by Dimension Crafts which I've had since I first started card making maybe 25 years ago, After stamping and cutting with a small Spellbinders scalloped circle I added gold glitter, from Create and Craft, to the edge of the sentiment plaque. Have you noticed that I'm using my ribbons and glitter now? I've not used them for quite a while but I'm finding items I'd forgotten about until I reorganised my craft room - although I have to say  I hadn't forgotten my ribbons. I've got so many rolls of ribbon I could never forget them or misplace them. lol That's job done, quite a simple card.

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:

Crafts Galore Encore - Anything Goes
Creative Craft Cottage - Use Ribbon and/or bow
Daisy Chain - Add Ribbon
Lemon Shortbread - Anything Goes
Crafty Creations - Anything Goes
Dragonfly Dreams - Add Some Sparkle
