Always Fun Challenges - Graduation

Hello My Crafty Blog Friends and Visitors

How has your weekend been so far? Yes some of us get an extra day today. For us that means a day in the garden but I am hoping to get out and do a bit of shopping. Last week we created a space in a border and hopefully we will be able to buy a plant to fill the gap (one that can cope with shade).

The new challenge starts at Always Fun Challenges and the theme is Graduation. As soon I saw this theme I remembered a digi stamp I had from Kenny K. Unfortunately he no longer sells his images.


The gold and black circles were left over from making an aperture for another card. I added  silver stars too. The pink paper was in my stash. I was able to bend the Congratulations die cut round the circle I added a drop shadow to help it stand out. 


I used this image for a Design Team card a few years ago. All I can say is that my colouring has improved. I still have a lot to learn. She was coloured with Promarkers and cut out with my ScanNcut. I did decoupage the certificate and the hand. Though this doesn't show in photo. 


Have a great day. 

I would like to enter the following challenges: 

Happy Crafting

Fabulous card Jackie. I love this image, I have one of Kenny's stamps from a very long time ago. I do wish he still made stamps and digis.
