Go Fish Challenge #17

It's my first "official" day of summer and I couldn't be more happy! I'm so excited to spend my summer working on cards and trying out new projects and techniques. Since I have much more free time now, I've also been looking for more challenges to play along with, and I recently came across the Go Fish Challenge Blog. They're a bi-monthly challenge blog that posts a new challenge on the 1st and 15th every month. I've posted their badge on my lefthand sidebar if you wanna stop by and take a look. :)

Their current challenge is a color challenge, my favorite! :)

I created this brown graduation card for the challenge:

(It's hard to see because the glitter gives off such a bad glare, but the owl is holding a banner that says 'You Did It!' I tried to take a close-up so you can see it better.

Go Fish is also having a design team call until May 30th, and I'm linking this card to both the design team call and the color challenge. :) 

What I Used To Make The Card:
- Brown and gold cardstock from Recollections
- Patterned papers from the DCWV High School Mat Stack
- Happy Graduation Cricut cartridge (the owl banner is cut at 2.25")
- Pooh Font Set Cricut cartridge (the 2012 numbers are cut at .5" using the Marker Shadow feature)
- Gold ribbon
- Wood star piece painted with gold acrylic paint
- Gold glitter

Thanks so much for reading, have a a great day!
