You’re a Star!!


star

Can you believe Summer is almost over??  I have to admit, I have mixed feelings about it; sad because short day Fridays at work are over but happy because it means the cooler weather is right around the corner and that means we’re moving soon too!   I have a few cards I haven’t shared on my blog yet so I have some posts to share when I get a chance while we prepare for the move (I packed up all my stamp stuff on Thu night – yikes!). 

This card uses the Gina K. Designs set Quite a Catch, which I adore!  I thought it would be fun to stamp the starfish on some Sweet Corn cardstock and outlined  him lightly with a yellow pencil and some glaze/glitter pens on his face!!

I stamped the seaweed onto turquoise sea cardstock and colored with Koh-i-Noor pencils. My card base is Creme de Menthe – I really like how these colors look together!  I used some fun easy-set eyelets with my oval greeting and made some zig zag stitching with black thread (after I made this card, I realized I should have layered a little black onyx cardstock somewhere).  Oh well.  I still adore the card because this starfish totally makes me smile!!  I hope it has the same effect on you too.

I appreciate you stopping by and ALWAYS cherish your kind comments!

What a fun card! He definitely makes me smile and so do your happy colors. The bubble effect of the embossed layer is a lovely touch, too.
