This card seemed a little plain to me, but in looking at it now, I've changed my mind. I can't think of anything to add that wouldn't detract from it. The star B&T covers the card measuring 6 x 4 1/2. The accent piece is the part I tore off for the previous posting, but this time I used the back side. I inked it all the way around and stamped it with a "Make a wish......" stamp before adhering it. I also made it a "pocket" so I could insert my 1 x 2 1/2 inch "You're a star" card. I stamped it in Moonstruck, but distressed it in Topiary. The large sentiment is on a coluzzle cut card. I stamped it first, like last time, with the back-side of the stamp in Crystal Blue and then the front of the stamp in Moonstruck. Once it was stamped, I lined up the coluzzle to follow the stamping and then made a fairly straight cut connecting the two curves. I roughed up the edges with the edge distresser and inked it in Moonstruck before I adhered it to the card. And I made it stand up by using the new 3d foam tape along the sides.

My favorite things in the world are a showery day, a warm cup of cider, a great idea and an empty notepad, or two or three - heck, just get me a whole case of the suckers, the pink ones! :) When my mom challenged me to do what I loved, I reclaimed my desire to write and can't stand to go a day, now, without spending some time with a pen in my hand. I'm not sure where God is leading me on this journey, but I asked Him to give me the desires of my heart and trust that He has for a purpose.
