Congratulations and celebrations .....

......  are sent today to my son Ben.  He got his GCSE results yesterday, and he is very pleased with his results.  Ben will be going to the college of his choice in September to do A levels in Maths, Chemistry and Biology.  So I've made a card to send to him and I've used two challenges to make it:


I used the chevron stamp to make the background pattern with one line of lime and then stamped the circles on a piece of white card, rounded the corners and stamped the sentiments.  I used Stazon for the sentiment as it shows up much more clearly on a pattern background.  I attached the sentiment panel with some dimensional tape to make it pop a bit.


Stamps: Waltzingmouse - Off Beat Backgrounds, Free Spirit Boy, Playful Pinwheels
Inks:  Stazon - Jet Black; Memento - Tuxedo Black; Stampin' Up! - Lucky Limeade
Accessories:  Card from stash


That's all for today.  See you soon.
