Success card.

It's exam season around here and that means one thing - success cards. It's the custom that when candidates are taking the National exams every year between October and November, family and friends will send what is commonly known as a success card. It's basically a note of good will and an offer of support.
I have several cousins and young friends doing exams this year and I am not one to send store bought cards. So this is the perfect excuse to do what I love most.
I made this card using a sketch from Stamping 411.
This card is for a boy hence the color choice and I made this quilled flower for a bit of drama.
quilling up close.
The sentiment was made by stamping the individual letters with an alphabet stamp.

Also for the following challenges;-
Stamping 411- sketch 173
Florishes Timeless Tuesday- make the sentiment the main focus.
Anything goes challenge- black and white
One stictch at a time- embellish it with your favorite things- quilled flowers.
Craftalicious challenges- anything goes
Tuesday throwdown- Anything goes
Top Tip Tuesday- anything goes
Thanks for looking and drop me a note, I love your feedback.
