Reach for the Stars ...

It's been quite around here this past week because I was baking, and putting together Teacher, Teacher Assistant's, and Bus Driver year end Thank you gifts for Katie.  Last day of school was Friday, and I was so happy to get back into my little corner to create "just for me" yesterday.

I have several cards to share with you today.  I managed to combine quite a few challenges. ;o)

My first card was designed using the current Freshly Made Sketch #36.
I used this lovely Sassy Studio Designs "Sandra's Graduation" that was given to SSD Fans for Free on Friday for the current Fabulous Freebie Friday Challenge at Paper Craft Planet. 

Sandra was colored with Copic Markers, and fussy cut out.  Once all the cardstock and design paper was cut I stamped the Star, then put all the pieces together, and added some Clear Star Twinkle Stickers.  The sentiment is from some Graduation Stickers I purchased from Hobby Lobby when my son graduated college several years ago. 

This card will go into my stash for next year when my niece graduates High School.

Here is the sketch provided ...

I'm also submitting this card for the following challenges ... SSD FF Challenge at PCP, Lily Pad Cards "Simon Says Stamps present a Star Challenge", and Paper Crafts Gallery Idol 2012 "Encouragement".

Until next time ... Enjoy!


Other products used ... Star from A Muse Studio "Let Freedom Ring" Stamp Set, Bazzill & Neenah Cardstock, DP from Basic Grey's Manila Paper Pad, A Muse Studio Slate Pigment Ink, Twinkle Stickers from A Muse Studio, Fiskars Scissors & Fingertip Blade, Mini Glue Dots, 3D Foam Squares and my trusty ATG.
