Congratulations!

Congratulations to me!!!  I got an A on my first biology test!!!  WOOHOO! So, to celebrate, I'm sharing some cards today that aren't for any DTs (finally)!  But first, let me show you why I've only been around in a DT member capacity for the last little bit...

Fun things like this~

And love from this girl~

She's the sanity in my day--she always seems to know when I need love because I'm getting too stressed out.  She's such a good fur baby!!!  I guess my DH give love, too...lol!  No picture of him...he'd not be very happy with me! ;)

Okay, now onto the card I've made!!!  It's a congratulatory card and it would be used for any congratulatory reason...but I'm thinking about using it as a graduation card. :)

Here's the card~

Detail~

For these fabulous challenges~




(Hopefully the end result of school counts?!)


I've used a rubber stamp from Stampin' Up! then to create the rainbow effect I water colored the portions inside the stamped design.  I then added the sentiment, a stamp from Inspired By Stamping, highlighted it with a clear glitter gel pen by Sakura.  After that was done, it needed a bit more BLING.  He he he...you know I LOVE me some bling! ;)  So, I grabbed my sequin bag and added some.  I had to color in the orange and yellow ones using Sharpies and then I like to add a dot of Liquid Pearls by Ranger to anchor the sequin a bit more.  Luckily I have a lot of colors... ;)  That's it!  Oh, I guess layering it all together.  Then THAT'S it. ;)

Thanks so much for stopping by to take a peek at my card!  I have more things to blog about so stay tuned...it might be a post heavy day here on my blog!  And don't miss the chance to go and play along with these fabulous challenges, too!!! :)  HUGS and happy stamping, friends!

Wonderful celebration card, for your biology test grades! Actually, I think your biology cell drawing would me a fun card if you shrunk it down to size. Thanks for joining the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge!

Congrats on your good grade, Mynnette! The card you made could be sent to yourself. ;) I like the rainbow effect you gave it, and how clean and simple it is.

So glad you shared it in the IBS gallery!
