Star Challenge

DSCF2878

Well, I haven't played any SCS challenges in what seems like forever, and I almost didn't play today, but I needed a birthday card for my nephew. He is a gun-totin', camo-wearin', truck-drivin' kind of guy so I wasn't sure he would appreciate a "starry" card, but that's what he's gettin'!

DSCF2875 DSCF2877 I did some embellishing on the inside too! I used a variety of star shapes on the inside and out--all were punched, and a couple were trimmed down to layer. Thanks for visiting!

I wish my "stop button" wouldn't kick in until I finished a card to the level that you do.

I have an honest question: with all the cards you are constantly making, how could you actually NEED a card?

Of course your nephew will love this card, it was made special for him. The DSP and stars look great together.

This is fantastic! I absolutely love your stamp choices. I still have yet to ink up that super cute congrats image. You have definitely inspired me to make a card using it! Great details, too!

If he doesn't like it, then too bad! I love it! Love the different patterns, and the scalloped square behind the star... GREAT detail!
