Star Light

Happy Friday!
Just a reminder, but today is the last day you can enter the Card Patterns Sketch challenge for this sketch and a chance to win a $20.00 voucher to the DRS Designs store.

This is my take on the sketch. Things always morph a little (or a lot) when I get a hold of them. I love this Star Wreath and I've been wanting to use it w/ this Star Light Greeting. The pink and blue background was sponged. After I stamped the wreath w/ the dark ink, I die cut it. I used a SAMJ to reposition the first two lines of the greeting to fit inside a smaller circle then cut around the inside stars so I could insert the greeting circle. (The rest of the greeting is on the inside.) The doily behind the wreath is another die cut. The large star (part of the Shooting Star) was stamped behind the greeting w/ the pink ink.

The same lt blue and pink inks were used to stamp the tail of the Shooting Star on the corners and the Interlocking Star Background on the front of the 5.5 x 4.25 white card. On the band, I inked the inside of a star border embossing folder before embossing the stars. I added some die cut navy blue stars and a couple of star brads to fill in for the side elements of the sketch.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Don't forget to wish upon a star!
