Way to go

Hi there!  I'm back again to share this card I made for my oldest brother.  He has spent the last four years taking classes to become a journeyman and he recently passed his certification test (he's a welder) so my family took him out for a celebratory dinner and gave him this card.  I made it when I still had my 4th of July supplies handy, so I thought it would be fun to group some stars together for the focal point.  The stamps are from Hobby Lobby and I used different Colorbox inks to coordinate with the MME patterned papers (Lime Twist- Fly a Kite).  I popped them up on different thicknesses of foam tape- hopefully you can see that in the photo below:

The sketch is based off of June's SFYTT, which I'm a little bitter about because I was too late to submit my card- rats!  I had the card made but I hadn't taken the picture and posted it in time, so now I'm out of the running for the grand prize in December, but that's my own fault.  I can always play again next year. :)  Anyway, onto the sketch!

For that bottom strip, I stamped the Paper Smooches sentiment a few times to punctuate the card's purpose.  My brother is a pretty humble and modest guy, so I wanted to get really festive with this card- it has been FOUR years, after all!  :)

I hope you enjoy this bright and cheerful card, thanks for stopping by!

Congrats to your brother! Awesome card too. Sorry to hear you're out of the running for the sketch contest, but you have a good attitude about it! :)
