I played around with a few different ideas for my card design and kept coming back to stars. Pulling out star related dies and stamps, I settled on using the Memory Box Starlit Breeze die along with a small MFT Stax Star die. The Starlit Breeze is cut into a white panel and then from gold shimmer cardstock.
Before the gold stars and circles were inset on the white panel, Blueprint Sketch Distress Ink is used to create a watercolor night sky behind the focal point. The word part of the sentiment is added and then the large star is popped up to finish off the card.
I love having a few versatile cards like this in my stash. I was thinking it would be a great encouragement, graduation, celebration or birthday card, but my son snagged it last weekend to give to his dad, who is a true Super Star, for Father's Day.
I am also linking this card to Simon Says Stamp where the Wednesday Challenge Blog challenge is to Add Some Shimmer.
I hope you check out all the wonderful Design Team cards and will join in on the challenge this week. Thanks again, Chrissy, for inviting me to play along as a Guest Designer!
