Tonight I learned ... never try to make a card while you are watching Dancing with the Stars with your husband.
He thought he would channel Len Goodman and provide his own critique of my work. I was working on my card for next weekend's Inspiration Challenge, and he decided to share quite a few suggestions ... that ribbon seems a bit weak ... why do you have so much white? ... well, you get the picture.
I suggested that perhaps it would be better if he kept his critique directed toward the tango and the jive rather than my card ;^)
I wanted a layout that was masculine, classic, easy to reproduce, and that featured the school colors.
These were very easy to do with sheets of school scrapbook paper and cardstock in school colors. I really love the Graduate medallion image from Stampin' Up's new graduation set.
