Time Out #135 - Inspired by Words Challenge

Hi friends!  The new challenge over at Time Out is the Inspired by Words challenge.  This is the quote this week:
"Keep your eyes on the stars and your feet on the ground."
-Theodore Roosevelt
Stars!  That's my take on the quote.  I needed a college graduation card, so the stars made it an easy card to make.  I started by searching my stash for stars, and pulled out this Shifter stencil from Tim Holtz.  I sponged Twisted Citron and Salty Ocean inks on the cardstock, then die cut it with a wonky stitched die.  The sentiment was die cut three times and stacked with some shimmer on top.  I stamped the other sentiment was stamped in Versamark and embossed in white on the black cardstock.  Perfect grad card!  And I made this in my new craft room!  It's not finished completely yet, but I was able to bring up the essentials to create this card.  Can't wait to get it completely finished!
You can see more from the Time Out design team and our guest for this challenge, Michele, on the Time Out blog.
