Graduate George

For this card I've loosely used Lizzie's sketch given for the sketchy challenges 25 on Pinkink:

Papers are from my offcuts - another for Pixie's crafty snippets 25 - the retro black and white background paper is DCWV from years ago, the strip with scalloped edge created on my rotatrim is guy's life and the torn oval behind the image is MME Andrea Victoria black damask. The card blank is a navy blue.

The digital image is from Charmed cards and crafts called 'graduate George', cut with a nestie die.

Colours are for The play date cafe challenge: black, white, blue:
