 Hello everyone,

Time for a new challenge over at LITTLE RED WAGON and our lovely Brenda is helping us out with theme - Congrats - Birthday, Graduation, Wedding etc, anything you would congratulate for and any project you want, cards, boxes, books whatever you want just follow the theme..

I had two Graduation cards to make for they were basically the same but a bit different..

There was also confusion on colours,  and things were getting difficult so I took the bull by the horns and went black and gold, they were delighted..

so, two bases in gold, then a black panel..

Then a black panel with gold..

Stripes, love stripes..

printed this fellow off thew net, cannot go wrong with a silhouette.

added some extra stripes on the black..

die cut my words..

added more black and white stripe paper at the sides,
 these are tiny scraps I keep and perfect for added detail.

One name fitted perfectly, the other was a long one but
squeezed it in..

Printed a sentiment to fit..

Yikes, deep breath..
and that was the easiest way to add Sebastians name,
 onto card stock..

Need something..

Gold stars...yes please..

and their tiny scrolls with red ribbon..

Congratulations boy's..

So, come check us out HERE

Thank you so much for stopping by..
I'll see you again soon with DT number two..
