Happy Graduation Shaker Card

My dear cousin's wife (she's like my big sister <3) is graduating this June and I'm so happy for her! I decided to make something special and fun for her to celebrate this memorable occasion. Nothing cheers me up more than a shaker card, so I'm hoping this will bring a smile to her face, too! 
I used the Large Numbers Framelits Dies from Stampin' Up. I love love love these dies and the coordinating stamp set (Number of Years). They are so versatile and their big size makes them extra unique! I'm so excited for the new Letters for You stamp set! Can't wait to get them, then I'll be able to say anything with my cards! #endlesspossibilities
 
The background was created by using SugarPea's Watercolor Brush Strokes stamp set. Another new favorite of mine. Since our university colors are navy and yellow, I decided to use different shades of blue ink for the brush strokes pattern and a sunny yellow patterned paper for the background. I think this card is super playful and hopefully it'll brighten up your day! Thanks for stopping by :)

    1. Thank you!! I knew I was going to make a graduation card using our school colors, but I had no particular design in mind until I saw this sketch! And I received the watercolor brush strokes stamp set just in time, too~ Thanks so much for having this challenge and leaving this kind comment :)
