You're A Super Star

Hello, Blogland! Today I'd like to share a congratulations card, but I need to make it quick (our block party is today and I still need to make a dish).

I started by hand-stitching the Summer Sunrise ric rac layer and the Spring Rain patterned paper together before adhering them to the white base. Then I stamped, sponged, and layered the sentiment before adhering that to the patterned paper layer and rounding the upper right hand corner. Next, I stamped the star and punched it out using the Fiskars star punch. Finally, I stitched on the button and mounted the star over the sentiment. Pretty easy peasy!

I also wanted to mention that I did a big update on my Etsy shop over the last couple of days. I'm not through yet, but I wanted to give a heads up.

Hope you're having a great weekend. See you soon!

I love this nice clean design! The layout is fab and I'm loving the colours together! Your sponging really brings it all together - I love it!
