Yippee for the Snarky Stampers!


Y is for Yippee is the brand new challenge at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers! Let's celebrate... something! I'm celebrating that we had a couple of spring-like days this week, even if today we're back to brr. And looking ahead a couple of months, I decided to go with a graduation card for my version of yippee: 


This will eventually be for my great-nephew, and I would like to suggest to all schools that they should make their team colours noticeable somewhere on their websites. Eventually I determined that gold and black was what I wanted. I used the current Freshly Made Sketches sketch (I flipped it) for my design — I have a few layers here, but I say the overall look of the card is still quite clean and simple. The mortarboard is from Crazy Things, but without a bird, dog or cat beneath looks quite classy! I went over the tassel with a Versamarker so I could give it some gold tinsel embossing powder bling. I luckily had patterned paper, gold pearl paper and gold mist (for splattering) that all coordinated. 
I'm also going to add this to the Rubber Dance challenge of black & white with one colour, as well as Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday anything goes challenge. 
The sisters did not manage a lot of snark this week, so thank goodness our latest Queen and guest designer, Becca, did! Be sure to check out their creations, and then join us!

Haha, I've often thought that schools' colors should be easy to figure out by visting their websites! I like the colors you've chosen. They work well for your graduation card. Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches!
