MMSC3 - For I know The Plans

Here it is already...Week #3 in the Midnight Madness Challenge !! Below is the Sketch we were given for this weeks Challenge and above is my take on that Sketch. As you can see, I chose to do a graduation card. I had a custom order for a graduation card and I thought this layout was PERFECT for it. I'm glad it's finally Tuesday. I've been dying to post this card!! I love Tuesday's now!!

Alright, yes I used more wood! But you know what this is paper backed CORK! It is really, really thin, flexible and some of the coolest stuff I have seen! This cork has little wholes in it and I think they must have used a metallic paper to back it with. Maybe not, I could be wrong. But these little wholes have a metallic sheen that is so eye catching. I know photo's just do not do this product justice!! And to top it all off...it sews like a DREAM!

Be sure to join the fun and play along with all us gals over at Midnight Madness Challenge! I love seeing all your creations!

Love the natural look of this card, the cork dp on it is gorgeous and the buckles you made instead of the buttons!
