Happy Graduation

Hello, everyone!  A warm welcome to my lovely new follower - wlt27 / Wendy L - so happy you joined me!  You're my 300th follower - Woohoo!  So excited to have 300 followers now - I can't believe it!  You all know I'll be thinking about some celebration candy - I'll wait until after my blogiversary candy is over, so stay tuned!

I am back again today with a graduation card.  I was so happy yesterday to find some triple-shred fringing scissors for $3 that I couldn't wait to try them!  I've wanted them for a long time and finally saw them for a great price and now they're mine! I fringed all along the bottom of the black cardstock as well as made a homemade tassel in gold.

I fell in love with the black and gold colour combo used on the Camera Mug over at Jennifer Grace Creates - Focus Your Craft and Soul Event. If you haven't already checked out Jennifer's awesome event, you don't know what you're missing!  Head on over - I know you'll be inspired too!

The glittery gold alphabet stickers are from EK Success and I heat-embossed the graduation word (Newton's Nook Simply Sentimental) in Gold Tinsel (The Artful Stamper), which contains gold glitter.  It's much more sparkly in real life than in the photo.

I would like to join the Totally Tassel challenge again over at Curtain Call - I hope I'm allowed to enter a second time!  Here is the graphic for the Curtain Call challenge:

I would also like to support these 5 challenges:
