These cards took me about 5 minutes to create, and while they are simple – they turned out beautiful!

I added shimmer trim & a few silver sequins to complete the card.  I love the new “Congrats” M-size stamp set – and I know I will be using this a LOT as we approach the graduation season. Smile 

Here’s a close up of the 2nd card….

I used the Z32223 Jubilee Card Kit (10 card bases with pink bases & gold foil dots & die cut shapes). 

I also used Gold sequins, and gold shimmer trim AND I pulled in some scraps from the MAY special at Close To My Heart – the Happy Times paper pack.  This paper pack is $14.95 OR get this EXCLUSIVE 14 sheets of paper for FREE with every $60 purchase you make in May 2016 at CTMH!!
