5/11 Graduation Smiles

Every time I make a card with the "Go, Graduate" set from the Summer Mini Catalog I find myself smiling. It's a fun set to work with! This card fulfills two challenges. One for Late Night Stampers to Make It from the Mini and the other challenge is a Stamping 411 sketch challenge. I also challenged myself to use a set that when purchased this month from Stampin'Up earns you a set of designer brads . . .so I decided to use designer brads on my card, too!

Here are the supplies I used if you would like to recreate this card:

Stamps: Go Graduate, Elements of Style (when purchased in May from your SU demonstrator qualifies you to receive a collection of designer brads!)
Paper: Basic Black, Naturals White, Whisper White, Brushed Silver
Ink: Encore Silver, Glorious Green
Tools: Big Shot Machine, Lattice Square Impressions Folder, Scallop Border Punch, Paper Piercing Tool to create holes for the brads, Blender Pen
Accessories: 1/4" Basic Black Grosgrain, Filigree Brads

I never use Glorious Green...guess I should start after seeing your card, love it!!
I found myself smiling too when I saw this card! It is infectious! I'm with Kerin ... hardly ever use Glorious Green (even though green is my favourite colour) ... but you have made this work so stunningly well! TFS Hugs xxAxx
