Alphabet Challenge Blog - Letter Y - You Choose

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

The weekend is nearly here and the start of the Half Term break for me. Today is a training day so no children in school.

The new challenge starts today on the Alphabet Challenge blog the letter is Y and the theme, chosen by me,  is You Choose. In other words anything goes. I will be choosing the top three at the end of the challenge.

I was asked to make a Graduation card for someone's daughter at work. She got a first and she likes pink. I found some dotty paper in my stash but it was a bit too bold I toned it down by adding a layer of vellum. 

I used my X-cut dies to cut the number and the st. The star dies came free with a magazine a while ago. They have been so useful. 

This is a Tattered Lace dies it is one of the most useful dies I received when I was on their Design Team. 

I cut her name with my Tonic Alphabet dies. 

Apparently the recipient was thrilled with her card. She graduated earlier in the month so it is okay for it to be shared now. 

Enjoy the weekend. 

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie
