Graduation Congrats!

Hi Guys! I'm here today with a card to show you that I made for the newest challenge over at My Creative Time. The theme of the challenge was to reuse something and I have been wanting to make a project with an old children's book I picked up a while ago. I also needed to make a grad card (yes, in our little town for some crazy reason our graduation is the third week in September!!) and I thought this would be the perfect chance to use some pages out of my book! 


I used the Hat's Off and Everyday banners stamp sets by Pink By Design as well as a star shape and a little grad person from the Silhouette store. The strip of text 'paper' was cut from the kids book and inked with squeezed lemonade Distress Ink. I used some twine for a little added detail. The blue background was stamped with the Quatrefoil background stamp also from Pink By Design. 


I used some pop dots to add some dimension and make my happy little grad stand out. 

Hope you like my card today!!! Make sure you come back tomorrow, it's my turn as a guest designer for Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons!!!
