Congratulations! and DT Call

It's time for another Cards for Men Challenge!  We have some fab entries for our Kicking Back Challenge and we can hardly wait to see what you have for us this time!

"Congratulations" is our theme and we want to see the word "Congratulations" somewhere in or on your creation.

The winner of this challenge will receive a fab prize from our sponsor Meljen's Designs!

For my project I created a graduation card using Grad Cap and Grad Diploma both by Meljen's.  I colored the images with my Copics and also colored the chipboard key then added some glitter to sparkle it up.  For the "congratulations" portion of our challenge, I used background paper that already had the word printed. The sentiment is in the Graduation Sentiments set by Raindrop Echo Designs.

For some fab inspiration, check out the amazing projects by my fellow members of the Cards for Men Design Team!  If you would like to join this fab team, make sure you add "DT" at the end of your name when you link your project.
