TSSC179 and Uncharted Territory

My nephew's graduation party is this weekend and this card is for him. I think the greeting in the Uncharted Territory stamp set is perfect for a graduation. The Sanded stamp which was used for the background, retiring July 1, adds a little texture, as does the Square Lattice Embossing Folder.

I also created this card with the Technostamper Monday Lunchtime Challenge in mind. However, if you look at the sketch, above, you will see that I am missing a layer. I got to this point in making the card and decided it really did not need anything more. After all, a sketch is meant to inspire, and does not need to be followed exactly, right?

I used the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set to place a greeting on the inside of the card. I love this set! Whenever I am searching for the proper greeting and can't find it, Teeny Tiny has them all! Don't forget about the insides of your cards, the backs (hand-stamped by) and the envelopes. Every attention to detail makes your cards so super-special!

I love this Sandy! I am not sure why this set did not appeal to me but I am thinking I need it now. Great card. Thanks so much for playing along with my sketch challenge this week!
