I’m quite in shock at how many plaids and checkered patterned papers I was able to work into this card lol.

I added some lovely flowers that matched the ones on the wreath sticker.

I worked in quite a lot of spacers to add dimension and to keep the patterns from getting all squished together.

Okay now it’s your turn to create an Anything Goes with Ribbon or Trim project and link up with us to play along!

Pirate Graduation Card

Standard

Hey Peeps! We’re starting a new Anything Goes with Ribbon or Trim Challenge at Really Reasonable Ribbon.

Okay. I’m just gonna say it. This may be the coolest graduation card ever. At the least it’s the coolest one I have ever made. This card was gifted to an awesome young man who is a friend of our youngest Son and a fellow Boy Scout. We are super proud of him. He has a very bright future I’m sure  : ) Well done Zachery!!!

Did I mention it’s a shaker? And did I mention that I die cut and embossed those stars with a shiny silver finish? That’s how you an tell how much I like this young man.

I wanted the Pirate P to be inside the shaker…but I didn’t want it to get turned over or stuck in a carner so it’s secured in place with fishing line.

This tag is similar…but has a different sentiment.
