You Did It!

A sweet friend of mine graduated from college last weekend. I wasn't able to make the party, but wanted to make her a card to tell her how impressed I was with her Perseverance and hard work!

I loved the Paper Player's colors this week. They are Christmas-y, but also applicable to other occasions!

And, I used the sketch from Clean and Simple. I am such a sucker with a sketch that has repeating elements!


This card uses a NEW stamp set. It will be in the upcoming Sale A Bration catalog which means it will be FREE!! Woot! I had nothing in gold other than ink, so I threw in the silver shimmer paper and it really made things pop! Who knew you could pull of silver and gold at the same time! Ha!

Stamps: Sprinkled Expressions (SAB)
Ink: Brushed Gold (I think..)
Paper: Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla, Silver
Other: Big Shot, Stars #2 Die, Cherry Cobbler Twine, Large Scallop Circle Punch, Gold Embossing Powder, Heat Gun, Stampin' Dimensional.

TGIF!! :-) Thanks or stopping by!

  1. I liked this card so much I "pinned" it. Apparently I'm not the only one who liked it, because 3 people re-pinned!
