Just Magnolia - week #8 - Rach's Sketch

This weeks challenge on the "Just Magnolia" blog
was LOTS of fun.
I couldn't help but to participate for two reasons.
1st, because I couldn't wait to use my new Magnolia stamps,
and 2nd, because the sketch looked great.
My card is something that my friend wanted me to make,
and Rach's sketch was perfect for it.

I stuck with red & white which are the school colors,
and the rest all just sort of fell into place.
The funny thing is that NONE of it was any DP.
It was just your basic red or white card stock.
I printed the school name on the red, and used my
cuttlebug for embossing on the white.
The flowers were punched from that same red card stock.
So nothing fancy was used for this card.
The ribbon maybe, but that was just ribbon from my stash.
The outside sentiment was computer generated, and the inside
sentiment is part of the magnolia graduation collection.
(the random congrats stamp is The Greeting Farm Cake Topper Set)

I just LOVE the way it turned out.and of course I had to play a little more
and decorate the inside to match.
