Masculine Graduation

Today is the 28th of the month and it is the day I post a project for our Challenge Your Stash group on SCS.  This is our 23rd month of de-stashing-we are coming to the end of our 2nd year into our challenges.  

The premise is to create a card or something else that uses only items that are in your own stamp room--nothing new is to be purchased.  The hostess each month posts their challenge to the group and the card is due to be posted on the 28th. Each person in the group creates their card with their own image, their own papers, their own embellishments with their own supplies--using up items from their own stash!  The card can be for any occasion and each person is encouraged to send the card on its way to someone so it can be admired.  It is a way for us to step out of the box a bit and create something that follows a challenge--isn't that what a challenge is supposed to be.  And--no money is spent as all items are to be already available in each of own stamping spaces.

Maggie posted our November challenge--Make a masculine card and use a die on it. 

I used a die that I purchased last spring that I thought would make a cute graduation card and used some masculine paper too.  I added the word "Congrats" from another die in my stash!

Here is the inside of my card:

If you check some of the blogs on my sidebar, you may find others who have posted their cards today or in the next few days.  There may be more posted in the thread on SCS, so you might want to check out the link here.  We also have a keyword for the SCS Gallery--it is CYSNOV.  You might see many cards there is you do a search.

I hope you enjoyed my card and I know I am excited to check out what my other hoarders, I mean stash reducers have made!  Thanks for stopping by today!  For December, Jody is up and I cannot wait to see next our theme.  Be sure to check back to see what we create on the 28th!

What a fun card Barb - the movement in the graduates silhouettes is marvellous, and I love the colours you have used behind them
