It's Your Day!

A card made just to play! Finally!!! I spent some serious time in my room yesterday, putting things away and sorting. With the upcoming change of catalog, I always go through and pull retiring sets and accessories. All done and ready to work!!

I combined two challenges for this card, the Clean & Simple sketch FTL146 and the Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge Starts & Stripes.


The card base is Night of Navy. Across the top and bottom I stamped the stars from Extreme Elements in Night of Navy. Across the center is a striped print of Cherry Cobbler DSP. Behind the top and bottom edge is a Cherry Cobbler Scallop Ribbon Border. The stars were cut with the Stars #2 Original Die in the Big Shot. I layered together Cherry Cobbler & Night of Navy stars. In the center of each are silver brads. "it's your day!" comes from a new hostess set, Happiest Birthday Wishes. The stars are attached with dimensionals.

Thanks for stopping by! Heading back upstairs as soon as this thunder storm we're currently having blows over. Nothing major, just home wind, heavy rain & small hail. Just another day in Nebraska!!

Jennifer, great card! I love the stars die. I am so bummed they're retiring the punch, ugh. And I really like how you made your own background with the Extreme Elements stamp. Thank you for joining us at Hand Stamped Sentiments.
