CFC4 Challenge - ConGRADulations

Hello again! I’m back because I wanted to post this today as well!

I really wanted to participate in the CAS-ual Friday’s Challenges, last week but I posted a day late - what a nerd - I missed out on the challenge. I didn’t want to miss it this week. CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #4 here I come ;). The theme for this week was:

And here is a look at my card:

When I saw that the challenge this time was Graduation, I was totally wishing that I had Lawn Fawn’s “Hats off to you” Stamps :(, but I don’t. I did, however, just pick up this awesome Bo Bunny star mini stamp set from Paper Niche this weekend, and thought it’s be perfect. I paper pieced the star and popped it up with foamies for fun. The paper is Fancy Pants’ Beach Bum line. I used Lawn Fawn’s Harold’s ABCs and Bannerific to create the banner/sentiment. Thought it was fun. Here is a look at the inside of the card:

I played off the card for the “you’re a star” sentiment, and the flourish is also from the Bo Bunny Stamp set.

Fun stuff. I really love this new Bo Bunny stamp. I can see myself using it for so many different things. Endless possibilities.

Anyway - you have a wonderful day crafty ladies!! Hey! We're already to Tuesday - that's awesome!
