I had a few moments to get crafty today and decided to play along with May's Papertrey Ink's Blog Hop!   This inspiration pictures created a whole lot of possibilities.  It was hard to decide which route to go!


I need a graduation card for a guy.  It was all I could do not to add some sequins!  I started with rustic white card stock. 

I stamped the "Congratulations" from Bigger Blooms several times in different colors to comply with inspiration photo.  I used the Number Time Trio die collection to cut and stack the year.  I wanted the numbers to be tonal to the background.  I layered the card front onto a new leaf base.  Like I said, I really wanted to add some sequins.  I decided against it and just leave it plain since it is for a guy.

As always thanks so much for stopping by!


Just want to add that lining up the stamps and getting a good impression repeatedly  was so easy using my MISTI!
