Stars : Sisterhood Challenge

The challenge over at The Sisterhood of Crafters is I'm making this card the start today....with stars popped up on front and stars embossed into the Chocolate Chip panels. I finally used some of my fun ribbon that I've had for ages, but never seem to use...figured it worked close enough to the Baja Breeze that I could justify it's use ;)

The sketch is a fun one from Viva La Verve June Week 1 and I kept it pretty true to the sketch. Some people are great about taking liberties with layouts, but I'm such a rule follower that I struggle with originality in that respect.

I figured the sentiment would work for my sister in law's upcoming anniversary since the size of the card falls more into my 'hand delivery' category. I love the relationship that she and my brother in law have and I think she'll appreciate the sentiment, too. My nephew, their son, is a complete sweetheart and I'm sure it's thanks to his awesome parents.

I have a feeling the Stars challenge will be filled with Fourth of July submissions....and I can't wait to see everyone's creations starring.....Stars! Get over to The Sisterhood to get in on the challenge!


  1. What a great sentiment to use for the anniversary card! The color combo and the embossed stars (one of my fav embossing folders) make it a real standout! Hope you day is great!

  2. that ribbon was made for this card! LOVE the 'liberty" you took with the stars instead of buttons or something round and the embossed stars just bring the right amount of texture and star theme to the card. Don't know about you, but our weather has been like March weather, grey, windy and wet :( It better smarten up for next week! ACK!!

  3. That arrow pointing to the sentiment is fabulous as are the stars :) The ribbon is perfect too! Great take on the sketch. Sure she will love it :)
