Here is a card that is the opposite of shabby chic . :) This is for the punchy challenge at CAS-ual Fridays. I used the sketch from the Sweet Stop and the colors from ColourQ.
This card came together really quickly and I'm pleased with the way it turned out. I was supposed to use an old punch for the CAS-ual Friday challenge and I have VERY few punches. One is an old Creative Memories punch I won at a crop. I don't use it much, but it reminded me of confetti, so I used it for this Graduation card. I got the idea of the cap from someone on the CTMH bulletin board (can't remember who). The ruffled ribbon was perfect for the Sweet Stop twist: add ruffles!

Materials used:
Paper: White cardstock (not CTMH), Desert Sand, Cranberry, Juniper, and Honey cardstock
Stamp: Wicked
Ink: Juniper
Embellishments: Goldrush Sassy Strands, Antique Copper Designer Brads, Designer Ribbon Red Collection
Other: Black Marker, CM punch
