Here is the card I would like to share with you today:

Wow, this was a tough card for me to make in a way.  This is for my oldest daughter Rachel's high school graduation which is just over a month away.  I can hardly believe it- really where did the time go?  These are her school colors and 14 of course is the graduation year.  I originally wanted to use 2014 but I could not find a layout I liked using both the numbers and the stars.  So, seriously after quite a few hours playing around with it, I finally decided to just use "14" because it fit better.  I die cut the numbers with our number dies (love them- perfect size and font) out of silver sparkle paper and then outlined the edges with a black copic marker so they would stand out a bit more.

Our challenge to you this week is to make a Congrats card.
The first 10 cards in the hop were created for your inspiration by the design team.  As you hop along, leave a little love behind, then create your own Congratulations card and use the linky tool to add it to the gallery!

Just a few guidelines to remember as you play:
- You don't have to use a Sweet 'n Sassy image to enter (although we sure love when you do!)
 - You'll have until Thursday, May 22nd at midnight EST to enter
- We'll draw 1 winner from this week's challenge to receive a $10 credit to Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps!
- Please use code SNSFFC12 when uploading to Splitcoaststampers or other galleries 
Share a link to your creation below.

Thanks for joining us today!  Be sure to check back again on Friday, May 23rd to see if you won and to check out the next Friday Feature & Challenge!

Janette, I'm sure your daughter will LOVE this card! I could have sworn you matted the numbers, but I think it's a neat idea that you just outlined them with marker. Tfs!
