My Craft Spot Monday Challenge #8 - Congratulations

It's Monday and another fun challenge at My Craft Spot!  The Monday Challenge this week is to make a Congratulations project!  I already showed everyone the Graduation Congratulation cards I'm working on last week so I thought I would make a Congratulations card for a friend who is heading to the State Police Academy this summer. 

I used stamps from Inside & Out Set #1 for this card.  I had to make a slight adjustment to the wording but it really was the perfect stamp for this card!   

Here is a view of the inside stamp! 

I used a strip of Chocolate Chip Crinkle Ribbon as a little accent.  At first, I was not too thrilled with this card but my husband loved it.  He said the colors were very masculine and now it is starting to grow on me.  I guess if my husband likes it, then his friend will too! 

Products Used:
  • Stampin' Up! Cardstock
  • Tim Holtz Paper
  • Everyday Paper Dolls
  • My Craft Spot Inside & Out Set #1 Stamp Set
  • My Craft Spot Hand Dyed Crinkle Ribbon
  • Peachy Keen Wide Eyed Kids Stamp Set
There's a wonderful prize for you this week, so link up your Congratulations projects to My Craft Spot for your chance to win!  Thanks for stopping by!
