Seeing Stars

Another card using the July sketch from The Sketch File today.  I needed a fairly quick to make masculine card, so turned to my usual go-to motif of stars.  I really should make an effort to find something else to use for a change!

I thought I'd have enough suitably coloured bits in my Funky Hand scraps box to match up with the stars on the background I'd already stencilled in the blues and browny shades - yes, I know I should plan these things first, but where's the fun in that.......Luckily it all worked out okay, the "celebrate" was a bit of an after-thought. but does bring it all together nicely

Materials and Tools
Smooth white card blank with extra for stencilled panel
Papers from various Funky Hand collections 
Brown Bazzill card
Printed Twill ribbon, Inks by Versamagic 
Stars (Memory Box)
Nested Stars (Taylored Expressions) 
"celebrate" (Tim Holtz)
LO July Sketch The Sketch File

That's if for today, thanks for visiting I hope you like what you see :)
