Since Congrats was part of the board I knew one of the graduation cards in my production would involve our Retro Rubber Challenge. I choose the Metallics, Congrats, Gems on the bottom row.
One of our nephew's High School colors are gold and black, so I was off and running with Delicata Golden Glitz and Black Shimmer. The sparkle doesn't show up as well in the photo, as the sun was not cooperating when I took my photo. I was inspired by a CAS sketch over at CAS(E) this sketch and the rest is quick work. The grad caps are from Set #12 by Yvonne Albritten from July 2000. I bought this set at a convention in Portland in the fall of 2000. It has three different sizes of grad caps but I only used the two smaller ones. The sentiment is from Technique Tuesdays Grad from May, 2015. After stamping my images I edged the top panel with the Golden Glitz and the card base with Black Shimmer. A few gold and black gems finish the card. This was a fun card to create! Hope Parker enjoys it!
