YOU Did Awesome! - CAS Card

Hi, Friends...........

I am here with another challenge card for the MFP Simple Salutations Challenge with a graduation theme.  I had this CAS design in mind and am pleased with how it turned out.



I used a leftover K&Co. graduation sticker for the cap, trimming it as close to the design as possible and inking with a black sharpie around the edges.

The stamp was a clearance rack item at JoAnn's some time back.  I colored the y-o-u with a Spectrum Noir marker.  I free-hand (eek!) traced the path of the tossed cap with a black Sakura Glaze pen.  I mounted the card front onto a black card.  EASY!  

Wow....CAS cards are sure a lot faster than my usual layered numbers!!!  I could get used to that!!  Ha. 

Thanks for stopping by my blog to have a look see.  I appreciate your comments and also each of my followers!!!
