CCC: 2-2-2

This week's challenge on Cupcake Craft Challenges (CCC) was designed by a fellow design team member Erin: Today's challenge is all about the number 2! It's my daughter's second birthday, so I thought that would be a great way to celebrate!!! So in your sample please include 2 colors(plus a neutral), 2 shapes on the card, and 2 pieces of ribbon. Feel free to add any other embellies too:) Looking forward to seeing your 2's!!! Have fun!

I decided to go with a graduation card for my submission this week as I have about 4 Seniors in my church graduating this year. I chose Purple and Yellow as my two colors as those are one of the girls school colors. You know the bad thing about purple? There are so many different versions of it! And my camera can't seem to make the colors match--even when they match to the naked eye! ARGH! (yes, I'm going off about the button...LOL!) My two shapes are my squares and scallop circle. I punched out my Diplomabella image with my 2" scallop circle punch because I liked the look and because for some reason I just can't get her shoes to look right! :)

I used yellow grosgrain ribbon and a thin purple w/white polka dot ribbon as my two ribbon pieces. To add sparkle, I went around the edge of the sentiment (from a Studio G #30 Graduation set) with Stickles using Starry Night. I also added some on the robe collar and cap tastle using Yellow. It adds just the right amount of sparkle!
