BC154 The Future

Click  HERE for this weeks Annabelle Challenge.   For this weeks Blogger challenge the theme was, Graduation.  Now I don't know a single person who is graduating this year and rarely have a need for Grad cards so my selection of stamps for that theme is quite limited.  However after some searching I settled on this sentiment stamp from (Hero Arts - Anytime Messages) and the Graduation Cap from and old Hero Arts set, (Designs for the Year) that I've had for a very long time.  I wanted to go with something bright and cheerful as well so I picked out another pattern from the (Cosmo Cricket, DeLovely) mini deck.

Details: Card Stock: Bermuda Bay, Whisper White, Melon Mambo, Gable Green.
Designer Paper (Cosmo Cricket)
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Bermuda Bay
Other: Punches, Zig Zag and Embossed Curved Edge (EK Success)
Labels 8 Nestabilitie Dies
Certainly Celery Grosgrain Ribbon
Waterfall Sprinkles (Annabelle Stamps)
Foam mounting tape

Don't forget to click on the BC Icon on my sidebar and check out the other members blogs for their Graduation themed projects.

Have a great weekend.
