 Welcome to another fantastic challenge at 

Our challenge is "Bling it Up".  We love the bling!  CWWC is sponsoring this challenge and Ang is offering $10 Gift Certificate/Voucher for shop of winner's choice.

Thank you Ang!

I've made this card for my beautiful baby girl.  Alicia is graduating from high school and going off to college in the fall.  There are so many things to do and I'm stressing a bit.  She is such a great daughter and I am so proud of her.  She not only is graduating from school but also from seminary.  For four years she went to seminary in the morning before school.  This was not easy for either of us but we both made it.  She is also graduating with honors.  

 Isn't she just gorgeous!!  I know I'm a bit prejudice.  She doesn't like this picture, but since she never checks my blog I'm okay posting it...hehehe.  

Her school colors are green and yellow but her favorite color is black so that is why I have chosen these colors.  She hopes the gown is green and not yellow.  She is not a fan of wearing yellow.  I'm so excited that her sister is coming from North Carolina to go to her graduation.  We just can't wait to see her.

I wanted to use some new stamps I got recently.  I used some Versamark and embossed with a glittered embossing powder so it would have some sparkle.  I also found free banner letters and numbers.  So I cut them out and made a sentiment.  I so hope she likes it.

Please stop by our challenge blog and check out all the wonderful creations by the DT and then put on your crafting tiara and join us this week in the challenge.

Thanks for your visit and have a most wonderful day!
