Stars Congrats

Hi there & Happy Sunday! Its finally decided to warm up here and melt some of the snow off the roads and driveways!! I really do enjoy Winter though, and hope it doesn't melt all the snow and then everything is just yucky brown til the end of May.  'Cause we don't get spring til early June, then its Summer a week or two later!! :)

On to the card....I'm trying to keep my New Year resolution and use one of my many magazines for inspiration, and did so with this card. Inspiration is from the magazine Color Inspiration by Paper Crafts, page 40.  Now I can hear you all saying, Deb!!!! This is a new magazine, not an old one....I know, I know, I never promised to stop buying them, I just promised to use them more often for inspiration!! heehee :)

For my card, I used Crumb Cake and Night of Navy for the base, whisper white for the main image.  The stars are from the SU! stars die, the buttons from an old shirt of my DH's, SU! ribbon and large brad from the Hodgepodge kit. The dsp for the stars is from a previous Level One hostess set.

 Now the Congratuations is from last years' SAB, and for the life of me I cannot stamp this one straight!!!! I even used the Stamp-a-ma-Jig here and still struggled with it  Sheesh!!!  I also stitched around the edges of the white with my sewing machine. 

I loved the designer's clean lines of this card.

Thanks for dropping by, enjoy your Sunday! We are off to a ringette game, my DD is one of the coaches and the girls are in a final today so we will go along to watch. Should be fun. :)
