Addicted to CAS Challenge #112

 Hello there, blog friends!
It's time for another challenge at Addicted to CAS! Bobby is our Hostess, and she has chosen the Code Word 'Graduation'!


My step-granddaughter, Erica, graduated from college a few weeks ago, and I created this card for her ~


I started by inking a small background sky and stamping the sentiment with Versamark and Liquid Platinum EP. The silhouette of the graduate was cut with my Cameo and the silver stars are from Pretty Pink Posh. Erica loves all things 'sparkly', so I thought it would be fun to add the clear glitter c/s along the side. By the way, Erica graduated Summa cum laude, and we couldn't be prouder of her! She is also starting grad school in the fall ~ So exciting!

Addicted to CAS is such a fun challenge, and we would love to see you there! The winner of this challenge will receive a GC from Create a Smile Stamps! Also, Chrissie Stokes is our special Guest Designer and she has created a gorgeous card to inspire everyone!
Thanks so much for stopping by and a special thanks for your comments ~

Definitely perfect to add glitter, and the sentiment was a great choice too, I'll bet she loved it!

I love the softly inked background and that image is so great for a girlie graduation card, especially with the sparkle. Great card, Barb, and congratulations to Erica.

This is so gorgeous, Barb! The blue sponging really makes everything pop. I'm very late visiting so I'm going to head back through your posts and catch up on what I've missed out on over the last week.

Those silhouettes make a wonderful impact. Great sample for the code word.

Love the soft ombre background inking - makes the silhouette stamp even more dramatic!

Too much on my plate of late, but carving out some time to do a much-need catch-up on your gallery of loveliness! I know your step-daughter loved the beautiful card you created for her; a combination of elements that speak to her successes, both now and those that await! Your pride in her accomplishments makes me smile!
Hugs~c
