Earthy stars...


Hey,

So today is the day that my Ma arrives!!

Can't wait to see her tonight, its going to be a lot of fun.

I thought I'd share a quick little make for a colleague.

I was asked to make a small, simple earthy toned card for his girlfriend's 30th birthday...

Ok, fine..but there needed to be some girly in there right?

I decided to use only scraps.

I had an idea for the background worked out in my head, so I got to work!

I used brown recollections card stock, brown dew drop ink and a stencil girl honeycomb stencil.

How could I make it girly..this was foxing me and then I saw some stars on my desk...

I die cut 3 stars in 2 different sizes and with contrasting patterns and a glittery one for that girl zing! I attached the stars to the card with a mini staple.

Cute, but edgy methinks!
