Happy 300th Sketch Saturday!!!

Good morning!
It is the 300th challenge birthday at Sketch Saturday today! How incredible is that?! So we have a couple of special things happening today!

First of all, Sketch Saturday creator, Jo Edwards is joining us for today's celebration! It's so fab to see her here again!

Secondly, we not only have a sketch challenge, but we have a very special blog hop, with secret candy along the way! Simply comment on each of the DT member's projects for your chance to win! Winners will be announced next Saturday!

So here is the sketch for this week which was designed by Jo and was the first ever sketch...


Here is what I made...


I used another un-inked set for this card. I know it's not graduation season but I just thought this sketch suited the stamps perfectly! These are Pomp and Circumstance and are available in the new Spring/Summer catalogue. 


I used stamped the images in Basic Black and Elegant Eggplant using my Stampin' Write Markers. The paper is Patterns Designer printable from MDS and I finished with Silver 1/8'' Ribbon.
