2 challenges

A quick post before I go for my dad's shopping. We have just returned from my sons graduation. He has just become a Doctor of Philosophy majoring in plasma physics, needless to say we are very proud of him. My daughter managed to come along too with our 8 week old grandson who did exceptionally well, both at the ceremony and the lunch afterwards. I will hopefully post pictures another time.
This card is for the Saturday Sketch and Stamp with Fun challenges. I loved this sketch which I turned on its side.
I used FF stamp colured with Copics/Promarkers, nesties, Craft Creation and PM papers, Woodware border punch, the baubles are covered in Diamond glaze and the stars have stickles on, the rest is from my stash.
