A Quick and Easy Graduation Card

It's a good thing I had an extra card leftover from when my nieces graduated high school in my stash AND tht it fit in perfectly with May's Dreamweaver challenge theme of either Black & White with a Pop of Color and/or Gradudation. Otherwise I would have had to pass on this week's Dreamweaver challenge. My craft room is in total chaos thanks to our move last weekend.

The school colors at my nieces' high school were blue and white so I really lucked out for this challenge! I first paste embossed the LL449 Graduation stencil with black glossy paste and set it aside to dry. (This was before I discovered the magic of using a griddle on a warm setting!!!). The sentiment is from MSE and inked and embossed with black embossing powder. I love how it matches the glossy paste perfectly!

Very simple but considering it was either this or nothing, I am happy!

Now, please take a few minutes and go check out the other Dream Team blogs. I am always amazed how everyone inteprets the challenge theme differently!

Remember, you only have until the end of the month to link your creation to the Dreamweaver blog to be eligible to win some fantastic Dreamweaver stencils. AND if you don't have an online place to publish your work, just take a picture of it and email it to Lynell. She'll be happy to post it on the Dreamweaver Stencils blog instead!!!

I hope you'll stop on by next week when hopefully I'll have found my stencils and created something NEW!

Hugs and happy creating!
