Love You to the Stars...

May 9, 2013

Happy Thursday, all!!  How has your day been so far?  Mine has been good!  Pretty quiet around here...other than when the dogs bark at something outside.  It is so nice & warm in Missoula right now, and I am just loving it!  Been sitting on my back deck a bit each day, and just enjoying it while I can.  Considering it's only May...we are bound to have another cold spell.  It would be great if we didn't...but I'm not counting my lucky stars on that one.

Speaking of stars...that is a main theme in my card today!!  I love this sentiment, and the gold glittery stars are the perfect accent for it!  I've combined Dear Lizzy "Lucky Charm" with Studio Calico's "Atlantic" on this one...and I think it turned out so sweet!  I love the soft shades of pink, and bold navy...and the vellum diecuts just make me swoon a little bit.  Here is what I made!
1. Make A2 card from white cardstock.
2. Cut background paper slightly smaller, then adhere.
3. Layer the banner stickers to the left side, popping the top layer with foam adhesive.
4. Add the wood veneer banner & vellum layers to it, then top with a bow & sequins.
5. Diecut the circle printable, then layer to the front.
6. Add the sentiment card to the top of it, then layer three tabs tucked under the right side.
7. Cut out the sqaure & arrow printables, then layer to left of the sentiment.
8. Add the vellum frame over top of everything, cutting away the left section of it.
9. Accent with a wood veneer, then add a jewel & sequins top of the card.
10.  Finish the card by adding two gold stars to the front.

Kind-of loving this cutie of a card right now.  It would work for mother's day.  It works for just love in general.  A girl or young woman would love to get it...lots of possibilities.  That is all I have for you today...but thought I would share a photo of this little cutie:
She was laying like that on my bed last night while I was brushing my teeth & washing my face.  And now my secret is out....I never make the bed.  Unless I'm having a party.  Ha!  I'm cool with it don't judge me.  :)

Have a great rest of your day!
