Be Happy!


Second post today! I have a card to share I made using 2S4Y sketch and Ted's color challenge.
Here is the card.


 I live in Australia and we have Australia Day on January 26th. So making a patriotic card at this time of the year is not suitable for me. Therefore I used the Red, Blue, White and Kraft together with a general sentiment. Sketch was perfect for the card. After seeing a lot of stars on cards lately, I wanted to make a card using stars and I borrowed the star punches from my friend. My son is a tween and I don't use stars based decor for his room anymore. Infact I have given them all away. So I did not bother to get any Star  based stamp set or punches. I think its time for me to revisit stars again:)
Supplies:
Cardstock: SU's Kraft CS, PTI's Enchanted Evening, Stamper's Select White, Pure Poppy CS
Stamp Sets: Distressed Stripes and Enjoyed the Ride
Accessories: Star punches, Square punch, Tag punch and scallop square punch from SU, Twine,Two way gluepen and SU's Dazzling Diamonds.

Thanks for the sketch, Laura! and for the color challenge Ted!
Have a great weekend.

Hugs
