As soon as I saw this sketch, the idea for a shooting star came to mind. I had just received the fun set Pictogram Punches and knew what my sentiment would be:
I think this will be a great card to give our daughter in a few weeks when she starts 5th grade (gasp)! It would make a great birthday or congratulations card too. My color inspiration came from the Flashback DSP: Crushed Curry, Real Red, Pool Party, Smoky Slate and Basic Black. The stamp set Be the Star with it's coordinating Star Framelits makes a fabulous layered star. The Pictogram Punches sentiment was heat embossed in black on Silver Foil paper--isn't that a fun look? The other two banners were stamped with images from Gorgeous Grunge and the flag ends were made with the Hexagon punch. All pretty simple, really!
I just love the piercing template that coordinates with the stars and am amazed at how much dimension just a little bit of piercing adds to the inside. This sentiment, from Fabulous Four, is a great one and has already seen alot of activity in my studio. You really need it. Seriously.
You also need to pop over to my friends at The Paper Players to see all the eye candy they have this week. I hope you'll make time to play along with Ann's great sketch this week before our challenge closes on Friday, August 1st at Noon (PST). Thanks for stopping by!
