Starry Congrats

Hello again

The card I have to share with you today was made for our 18 year old Godson to congratulate him on successfully completing his Tertiary Enabling Programme. This is a 6 month course designed to prepare young people to undertake a full time degree course.  Well done, Joss.

Stars came to mind, so I got out my Classic Stars jumbo wheel and Real Red ink pad and quickly prepared a half sheet of starry background.  This is a great way to prepare backgrounds and I should use them more often. This was teamed with Night of Navy and more Real Red for a bold effect. The small and large star punches were used to cut out the blue outline star which was popped up over a strategically placed star on the background. A silver star brad was added to the centre to finish it off.  I like the bold sentiment from the retired Congrats stamp set which has been white embossed.

It is going to be a wild and woolly day in Melbourne as the storm from WA reaches us.  My nicely swept path and driveway is now piled with leaves from the very large  Liquidamber tree in the front yard. Oh well, they have to come down eventually!

Have a great weekend.

I love the colours, and the bold banner, across your card, Judy. The star brad looks great (love those things!). I'll bet you are proud of Joss; that is a great achievement.

Lovely card Judy! So simple but the one navy star really stands out. Well done Joss!


What a great card! And so simple, love your idea and will have to store it away to use sometime! Congrats to your Godson too:)
