It's time to celebrate with the
What does that mean? Well, we want to see your

Here's what I came up with:

 and the inside:

I got inky again using my Magenta dye powders in turquoise and royal blue.

Now it's your turn to make a congrats themed card or project. It's graduation season. 
What better way to crank out a card or six? Just be sure to link up at the 
Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers so we can admire it!
