APTS challenge blog Anything Goes theme for May 2021

 Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity blog! My artsy-crafty heart has gotten really excited this week with sentiment-focused layouts so for this anything goes month of competition at A Place To Start challenge blog, I decided to make a college graduation card. 

I thought about having shapes which would contain just one letter each in the word 'congrats'. But with several alpha sticker sets from Freckled Fawn and Webster Pages, I decided that using the little letter tile stickers would allow me to use more words on the card. So "Class of 2021" and "Yes" get added. Only Webster Pages alphas are used this time...and even for the 'yes' it's WP. 

APTS is taking a break this month, May 2021, from having a theme, so it's 'no theme' or Anything Goes in order to participate. The design team have been inspired with a slew of occasions so make sure to use my included APTS blog post link to go over and look at the other projects. Here's mine:

*patterned paper is the last sizeable section from an oldie that I've hoarded because 2 of my favorite colors are pink and purple
*stickers were outlined with marker to make the edges a strong contrast against the busy striped patterned paper; and these are oldies from a color-coordinated 2 sheet set so using 5 put a dent into slimming down what's left to use. Yea!
*base cardstocks in neon pink and mid-blue are either from Astrobrights/Neenah or Pen + Gear
*also the blue is the base--one layer, not folded--
