Congratulations

I can't believe it's here - my stepson is graduating from highschool!! Next year, it's my daughter's turn, where has the time gone??



This is the card I made for him, hope it doesn't come across as 'halloweeny'.  Orange and black are the school colours.  I love the little grad cap, I found that at the Silhouette Online Store.  Loved that you could cut the tassle in a separate colour.  Can you tell I popped it up a bit?

I used my new stencil from Simon Says May 2014 card kit for the stars, which is just what they're looking for in Simon's Wednesday Challenge 'Stencil It'.  I layed it over the paper and sponged on some grey ink which I also went over with some clear Wink of Stella.  I tried to get a good picture of the sparkle on the stars but it just wouldn't show up right.  I used this week's Sketch #314 from Sketch Saturday.  Rather than adding any more chevron to the card I stuck with the chevron pattern in the paper and added a couple antiqued brads to the corners.


Stamps:  Paper Smooches Sentiment Sampler
Paper:  MME Stella and Rose Mabel, SU Basic Grey
Ink:  StazOn Jet Black, SU Basic Grey
Accessories:  Simon Says Stamps 'Stars and Dots' Stencil, SU Metallic brads, SU Notebook punch, Silhouette Cameo, Wink of Stella clear

Great card! Love the colour combo and the fab stenciled stars! I didn't think Halloween until you mentioned it and I think it's fun that you used the school colours!

Very nice card! I love the stars and the border punch on the side gives it a great school feel.
