Sets of Girly Graduation Cards

   My husband has four little cousins (first cousins, once removed) that are graduating this year; two from college and two from high school.  
 I saw the Shopping Our Stash challenge:  Scrap Attack, and knew this was right up my alley!  I pulled out little scrap pieces of Glitz Design papers and die cut the grad caps and embellished with grey snaps.  I also saw the challenge at Little Tangles:  embellish it!  I used a sentiment from "Fresh Blooms" and embellished with some leftover MME "Fun day" rhinestones.
(a Neat and Tangled challenge blog)

And I based my cards on this sketch
Lastly, thanks to my blog friend Migdalia (aka Creative M), I am entering the current challenge at Pause Dream Enjoy Challenges:  Happy _______.

 But then I took a break and went out to get the mail, and I had some happy mail from Danielle of Neat and Tangled!  My Neat and Tangled gold metallic sequins had arrived!  So I made three more cards, but this time with off-white snaps, an Echo Park "Winter Park/Lift Tickets" chevron background, and I added a few MME rhinestones to the centers of some of the sequins (I had difficulty photographing):
   I like this set with the sequence even better!  I sense a sequins addiction coming on...

Happy Friday!

Love this, June! Thanks for liking our photos being posted to the FB wall! And I just have to mention, my mother's maiden name was HOOK and I believe an alternate spelling is Houck. Just thought that was interesting. I enjoy genealogy. Have a fab day! :) Janis
