You Did It! for Dies R Us Challenge Blog

It's the 15th of the month, so it's time for a new challenge at Dies R Us Challenge Blog. Every challenge runs for 2 weeks, and it has a theme.  The theme that starts today is, "Graduation/Congratulations".

I truly feel sorry for this year's graduating classes.  They are missing out on many opportunities because if this pandemic.  No large gatherings tend to put a damper in graduation festivities!

I do know some graduation seniors from the local high school, and I've been making them cards.  We can at least acknowledge them with handmade cards (and of course CASH!)

Here's my card for today's challenge:

The focal point of this card -- the "You Did It" sentiment, is from Frantic Stamper.  The school colors here are purple and white, so I mounted the You Did It on purple card stock, and cut the lettering on white. The stars are by Technique Tuesday, but these stars from Amy Design would work equally as well. 

There are other great project from the Dies R Us Challenge team that I hope you take time to study and enjoy, and I hope they inspire you to create a graduation/congratulations themed project of your own. One $10 gift certificate will be awarded and 3 designer choice awards. 

.Dies R Us now has a sister store with warehouses in the USA and Canada called Didi Crafts 

It will ship to both the US and Canada.  Didi Crafts will carry some of the same products as DRU, but most will be different.  Now our Canadian friends don't have to worry about huge taxes or shipping fees. How great is that!?!
I'd like to enter this in the following challenges:
As you like It -- Favorite color to pair with purple (I paired gold as it is the school colors)
D.L. Art - May Linky Party
Crafty Creations Challenges -- ATG
Word Art Wednesday -- ATG

Yes it's sad that our 2020 grads are missing out on so many of the normal Senior Moment Memories but these are troubling times and I just pray they all remain safe & healthy.
