Congratulations Grad ~ CTC24

Hey everyone!  Today I'm playing with CASE-ing the Catty #24.  This is my first time playing along with the challenge.  I love the idea of this challenge site, though!  I encourage you to check it out and play along too!
The challenge this time was to CASE anything from the Easter section of the Occasions Catalogue (page 34 and 35).
  • You can directly CASE a project (Copy and Share Everything) or use a sketch/layout, colour combo, embellishment, just to name a few examples, as a springboard for your own creations. 
  • Or simply use some new Stampin' Up! Easter supplies from the Occasions Catalogue.
I used the card on page 34 on the bottom left side of the page as my inspiration.  I drew inspiration from the striped background, bold center panel, and the circle cutout with ribbon/string down the middle.

I decided to get a jump on graduation cards.  I used the Congratulations from {Bravo} and inked it up ombre style with Pistachio Pudding and Coastal Cabana.  I added stars in a sprinkle fashion after punching them out of Silver Glimmer paper with my Star Confetti punch.  Lastly I added a fussy cut graduation cap (which I colored a bit with a blender pen and Coastal Cabana ink) popped up on a dimensional.  Fun stuff!

Here's a list of my supplies.....
Stamps: Bravo, Pure Gumption
Ink: Coastal Cabana, Pistachio Pudding, Memento Black
Paper: Best Year Ever DSP, Coastal Cabana, Black, White
Accessories: Confetti Stars punch, 1/4" black ribbon

Thanks for taking a peek!
