Oh em gee/PS Sparks - Cool Shades May 2013

Hello my lovelies and happy Thursday to you! Well, I didn't make the Sparks design team for this term...but I will be trying again in 6 months! In the meantime, I made a card for the Paper Smooches Sparks: Cool Shades challenge:

and the inside of the card:

Here are the colors to use: red, kraft, blue and teal:

Yep, I'm gonna use this for yet another graduation card! LOL! I think I only have 2 or 3 more to make. (Again, it was a fertile year for our families! HA!) I've used three stamp sets and three dies on this card. Woo Hoo! Note: The Duo Dies usually have a center cut out. What I did was die cut it and used the negative to trace the outline onto a piece of kraft paper. I simply fussy cut that then inked the edges. I'll use the first die cut for a future project. Easy peasy lemon squeezy!

Well, that's it for tonight. Leftovers for dinner as the hubby will be late. His company starts their golf club today after work, so I'm assuming he'll be playing...That is, if it's not raining where he's golfing! Isolated thunderstorms on the agenda tonight. (As I type this, it's started to rain here!)

Thanks for stopping by and I hope that you have a relaxing evening!
