"Well Done"

Happy Friday my friend!  I wanted to take the opportunity to pop in a challenge card today since the next couple of days I will be sharing sneak peaks of the really fun stamps being released by The Craft's Meow.

For my card today I combined CAS-ual Fridays Graduation challenge with Embellish magazines Text challenge!  Not my normal colors, but super fun to get out of my comfort zone with.  Here is what I came up with:


Starting with a white card stock panel, I randomly stamped a graduation cap.


I sliced off the bottom of the white panel and adhered a strip of Smokey Shadow card stock stamped with text in white ink, tied around some black floss and rounded the corners.


Using SRM Stickers Congratulation sticker sheet, I adhered my sentiment.  I adhered my panel with foam adhesive to an Ocean Tides card base.


Here is a look at the Embellish Challenge colors:


Thank you for stopping by today!  Be sure to stop back tomorrow to see what TCM has in store for  the June release!

--Lindsay

Stamps: For the Graduate, Background Basics: Text Style Papertrey Ink
