College Bound - Congrats

Happy Thursday Friends!

I have a masculine graduation card to share with you today using some fabulous Stars and Stripes Trendy Twine. This awesome Twine is still on sale at Annie's Paper Boutique!!!!

I started with a red card base onto which I added a layer of white cardstock. Using some patterned paper from my stash, I die-cut a banner adding to the middle left side of the card front. I added a strip of red polka-dot washi tape across the middle. I then took a long length of the fabulous Stars and Stripes Trendy Twine and wrapped it around the card front several times for visual interest and texture.
I used a scallop and square die (PTI) to serve as a mat for my focal image (Enjoy the ride PTI) and added it to the upper right portion of the card. Lastly, I added a few sequins and the Congrats (DeNami Design) sentiment in the lower right corner to complete my card.

I am going to join along the Retro Sketches Challenge this Week.  I took a little creative liberty...(:

Thank you for stopping by!
