Hi there!  It’s been a long time since I’ve played along with a couple of challenge blogs that I like, Freshly Made Sketches and Shopping Our Stash.  Both of their current challenges are ending today, so I decided I’d better get going on something if I wanted to join in them.

It took me a little white to decide what type of “three of something” I could use for the sketch.  Finally I settled on stars because I figured I could make them blue to go along with the Shopping Our Stash theme.  I die cut the stars from scraps of shimmery white cardstock and used a blending tool to add some blue ink to them.  I used plain white cardstock for the focal panel and for the card base.  The focal panel and the largest star have shims of cardstock beneath them to give them just a little bit of dimension.

My furry helper decided he needed to check on things while I was photographing the card:

It’s not one of my better cards, but when I send it to Send a Smile 4 Kids I think it will bring cheer to someone.  Thanks for stopping by today!

Supplies:
Stamp: So Much to Say (Lawn Fawn)
Cardstock: Cryogen White (Curious Metallic); Solar White (Neenah)
Ink: Brilliant Blue (Stampin’ Up)
Other: Puffy Star dies, Stitched Rectangle die (Lawn Fawn); blending tool (Tim Holtz)

  1. Stars + a “your’re awesome” stamp are perfect together. And I like that your furry helper approves! Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches!

  2. This is a fabulous card! I love your choice of star stamps for the corners of your card – they work so well for this weeks sketch. Thanks for joining us at FMS this week!
