CYCI#106 - Sketch Challenge

Hi all!  I hope you're having a wonderful weekend thus far!  This week we have a sketch challenge going over at Can You Case It.  It's a fairly simple sketch, you can make it as elaborate as you like though.  Just use the sketch as your guide and see what you come up with!

As for me, I diecut these stitched stars by Memory Box out of yellow cs and sponged the edges in Dried Marigold Distress.  Then I stamped the stars with a splatter pattern and heat embossed in black and white.  Reminds me of salt and pepper stars!  I mounted them on a background I created using the MFT watercolor stripes stamp, then I also distressed the edges and drew in stitching using my white UniBall pen.  I finished the card off with this very delicate hello diecut by Penny Black and a few Swimming Pool Pearls by Doodlebug.

So there you have it, thank you for stopping by, I hope you will leave me a comment!


  1. A bright and cheerful design, love all the details.

  2. It is such a bright and cheerful card. I love those splatters on the stars - what stamp did you use for them?

  3. Fantastic card, and am so impressed with that 'hello' diecut – that you were able to get it out in one piece and use it so nicely.

  4. Love it!!! Color, design, embellishments...great!

  5. Very nice! Love those splattered stars. That hello die cut is way cool. I reminds me of tangled telephone cords (you know, from days gone by).
