Make the Cards Challenge - Sketch


 Welcome back friends!

It's time for a new challenge over on  Make The Cards Challenge
Today we are having a sketch challenge.  


We are excited to have a guest designer today: Niki Coursey – Cardstoq

One of the things I do when die cutting any shapes, is to save the extras for future projects ... today's the day when I was able to use a couple of those saved frames from the pegboard hook.   I was also able to use a scrap panel of 'nighttime sky' designer paper for the background and that's what determined the actual theme of my card.

 Of course, I had originally thought FLOWERS & IVY VINES but this paper jumped out at me and I just had to go with it.  I'm really looking forward to seeing what everyone else saw when looking at this sketch.

Instead of vines I've used this fun & fabulous Memory Box 'Beloved Stars' die (#99056).


 And, my sentiment came from the Sue Wilson Expressions 'Mix & Match Friendship' die set (CED5430).

The extra stars that popped out of the Beloved Stars die were positioned here & there on my card front and the sentiment was die cut twice and glued together for added dimension.

I hope you'll come join in our challenge fun ... here's the link for you one more time ...
