You're a Star

We're enjoying fabulous weather again today so just a quick post from me before I get out in the sunshine in order to improve my vitamin D levels!

I've just put together another very quick and CAS card for a few challenges and also to add to the charity giveaway pile. I used a Die'sire dots folder to emboss the snippet of kraft card, Xcut nesting dies to cut stars from more snippets of card and the letters are the bits leftover from the Memory Box 'grand merry christmas' die. The sentiment tag is recycled from an old card, and the button and ribbon are from my stash (but originally came atached to purchases of new clothing)

and here's another angle to show the letters a bit better

I shall enter this in the following challenges

Creative Inspirations challenge 'seeing stars'
Papertake Weekly challenge 'cute as a button'
Allsorts challenge 'quick and simple does it' (my 3rd entry)
Pixie's Snippets Playground challenge 'use snippets' (my 2nd entry)
Cuttlebug Mania challenge 'button up' (using a Grand Calibur)
Crafting Musketeers challenge 'it's a mans world'
Sparkles Monthly challenge 'ribbons and buttons'
Country View Crafts challenge 'use kraft' (my 2nd entry)
My Craft Creations challenge 'anything goes' - this is their final challenge
Scrap & Craft challenge 'tie it up!! use ribbon or twine'

So that's it from me for now. Thanks for your visit and I'll be popping round to see you all later.

Brilliant card Andrea! So perfect for a chap - and such a clever idea to use the leftover letters from the Marry Christmas die for the word 'star' That's really thinking outside the box!
