Congrats Grad!

Happy Kitchen Sink Stamps Monday, thanks for stopping by, I hope you had a great weekend!  Graduation is next week at the local High School, while my boys aren't graduating this year, they have friends who are, so I'm trying to be one step ahead by getting some cards ready.

I used Kitchen Sink Stamps 3 Step Graduation and the Double Embossing Technique to create this card

This was supposed to be on of those 10 Minute CAS cards, but I it felt more like 10 hours!  My inky fingers got the best of me when stamping the sentiment and diploma.  I wanted more of an antiqued look, so I sponged on Antique Linen Distress Ink to the edges and also to the added frame cut using Spellbinders Labels 18.

Um, Lisa, do you really know what "inky fingers" are? I don't see any fingerprints or lines of ink on this wonderful card! It is great! And, it will work so beautifully for a male or female!

Way to go!
