Whoop whoop!!! The boy done good!

I'm a day late posting this card for our latest challenge at Sketch N Stash.  It's a congratulations card for my son for getting his degree but he only got the results confirmed today - he got a 2:1 in Character Creation and Special effects!  Well, done Harry, we couldn't be prouder and know just how hard it was to get there this year!!
This is the fabulous sketch designed by our fabulous lady of many talents, Angie.

We're being sponsored by Meiflower and they're offering a fab and very generous £20 voucher to the lucky winner to spend with them!

I had to use this graduate celebrating image from Mo Manning, Glad Grad Boy. 

I mounted his mortar board separately, to better fit the sketch but hope it looks like he's throwing it up into the air!
You may wonder why the little sentiment holder is a Frankenstein image, well check out the sculpt below that Harry made as part of his course.  It's amazing - and my hubby, Nick, is now the very proud owner of the bust (and several other makes too).

The only problem is, I can't remember where the little guy below came from as I snagged him as a freebie somewhere!!  If anyone recognises it so I can give credit, please do let me know!!
Below are a couple of pics showing my interpretation of the bottom line Angie's sketch - a line of nuts and bolts, springs and tacks, Frankenstein style

The papers are Graphic 45 and Bo Bunny and there's some Tim Holtz film tape and ticket die cuts thrown in there to go along with the film theme. 
You can check out the rest of the SNS team fab makes here!!
