Congratulations Graduate

Hi there, I told you I would have something else to post for you today. :) If you would like to see what I posted earlier just scroll down.

I wanted to participate in some challenges so I created a card that I will be giving to my son later this month. He will be graduating high school. I hope he doesn't think it is too juvenile but I really don't have many cartridges with cuts for an older graduate. Besides I got to do some fun things on this card and using Peachy Keen Faces always brings a smile.

I am entering this card into My Pink Stampers National Scrapbooking Challenges. This is for Challenge #9 Glitz, Glam, Glitter.

Another challenge that I am entering this in is Peachy Keen Stamps Let's Face It Challenge ~ Banner Up. Make a banner or use a banner on your project and as always for this particular challenge use a Peachy Keen Face stamp.

And the last challenge that I will be entering is over at My Craft Spot. This a Monday challenge and the challenge is to Bling It Up! If you haven't played in this challenge yet you should give it a try. Kimberly has great products that she is giving away not to mention that she sells the most gorgeous Crinkle Ribbon and so much more.

Now onto my card:

Just a bit of a close up! :)

Here is what I did:

Cricut Cartridges ~ Everyday Paper Doll Dress Up for the boy graduate, Birthday Bash for the banner
Peachy Keen Stamps ~ PK-450 Wide Eyed Kid Assortment
Rcollections Cardstock
Silver Embossing Powder ~ I heat embossed the background. I would consider this my bling or glitz
Studio G stamp for the background
Versa Marker ~ I used this to edge some of my cuts and also add 2011 to my banner so I could heat emboss with more of the silver embossing powder
Baker's Twine
White Gelly Roll Pen

That's it for now. I am going to see if I can get a few more projects done today. Hope to see you soon!

Happy Crafting!

WOW!! I love your card. Like you I also have a son graduating from High School this year. I've already received a dozen announcements that I will need to make cards for. Hope you don't mind but I do believe I will be borrowing your idea of the banner and boy. Thanks so much for the insperation.
