CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #4–Graduation!

 

CFC04

 

Today’s the day for another super fun CAS-ual Fridays challenge.  This week’s challenge is to create a Clean and Simple design with a graduation theme.  It can be for high school, elementary school, beauty school, college – even pre-school!!  Now’s your chance to honor your favorite graduate.

CAS-ual Fridays is very generously being sponsored this week by Market Street Stamps.  They’ve got some amazing stamp designs (I have one that I get to ink up very soon!) that I know you’ll love.  There’s a wonderful prize up for grabs to the new T.G.I.F. Club Member this week – check out the CAS-ual Fridays blog to see what it is!  Thank you Market Street Stamps!

 

CFC04 - Graduation

Here’s my answer to the challenge.  I used another super funtasmic stamp set from A Muse Studio called Con-GRAD-ulations.  The products I used are listed below:

STAMPS:  A MUSE STUDIO (Con-GRAD-ulations)
INK:  FRESH INK (Pool and Slate Pigment Ink); TSUKINEKO (VersaFine Onyx Black)
PAPER:  FRENCH POPTONE (Blu Raspberry and Black Licorice CS); NEENAH CLASSIC CREST (Ultra Smooth Solar White CS)
ACCESSORIES:  DOODLEBUG DESIGNS (Turquoise self-adhesive rhinestones); PAPERTREY INK (Vellum CS); STAMPIN’ UP (Stampin’ Dimensionals)

 

That’s it for me today!  I hope you’ll head on over to the CAS-ual Fridays blog to submit your entry for this week’s challenge and peruse the fantastic inspiration that the other Girl Fridays have to share with you – you won’t be disappointed, I promise!  Thanks so much for stopping by today – it means the world to me!!
