Hello Connie and Mary!

 It has been forever since I've participated in one of Create with Connie and Mary's weekly challenges.  This week's caught my attention because it asks us to use DSP and in honor of their 100th challenge, make a celebration card.  Now, all the stuff I used is Stampin' Up (one of their requirements), but I didn't exactly use a DSP that is retiring.  I used some stuff that has already been retired!  I used some Sale-A-Bration free paper (can you believe I still have some of this stuff?) and some Wild Wasabi from a Prints Pack.  I am maintaining that I still met this challenge!

The school colors at the school I teach at are green and gold.  For some reason, this card struck me as a graduation card so I focused on those colors.  My base is So Saffron.  The ribbon is, too.  Then I have Wild Wasabi and the DSP.
In addition to the saffron and wasabi stars, I used the sentiment from the Occasional Quotes set.

Thanks for looking!
