Reach for the Stars

This week one of my sons-in-law graduated from a long program to become a web developer/computer programmer. I've been so proud of the way he continued to work full time while he attended school. I'm also proud of the way he set a positive example for his four kids. Now I'm praying that God will lead him to the right job and help him achieve his dreams.

I made a couple of versions of this masculine card to celebrate his accomplishment and encourage his dream. I was inspired by inky chicks to add stars, which I cut with CTMH star dies:

I white embossed stars and the Big Dipper using the new CTMH Constellations stamp set. The Gray dotted paper panel is from the new Basic Fundamentals paper pack. The front sentiment is from the new CTMH A New Adventure stamp set. I had some Lagoon glittery stars left from a set of Fundamentals embellishments from a previous catalog.

I combined two sentiment stamp sets for the inside, the first part is retired and the "go where your dreams take you" is part of the Cricut Pack Your Bags bundle.

Thank you for visiting! May you also find ways to encourage people to reach their dreams.

I'm sharing these cards with the following challenges:
