Good morning! I'm really hoping I can keep up with this blog and really concentrate on making some good, fun, creative things. I'm loving all of these challenges I'm finding and subscribing to. I've been having trouble just making cards out of thin air, without purpose. And today was no exception, until I found the Peachy Keen Stamps Sketch Challenge: Think Bling! The sketch was really no problem but with having 3 boys I have very little bling! I actually rummaged through the kids craft bins and came up on some jewels and this is the card I came up with.
I've seen this sentiment on cards before and knew at some point I wanted to make my own. So when I saw the sketch I thought it'd be a cute idea to make the circle, stars. I gotta say I'm THRILLED with how this card turned out.
I took the stars from George and Basic Shapes and welded them together with my gypsy. Then I embossed them with the Swiss Dots Folder. The inside circle was from Just Because Cards. I printed the sentiment on vellum and cut it with a star from George and Basic Shapes. I added the ribbon per the sketch requirement and couldn't resist adding some faces to more stars with my Peachy Keen Everyday Character Stamps. Finally I used my Recollections petite daisy border punch on the star paper and added the jewels for my bling.
