Simple Stars

Hi there
I hope you are well today!  I rather think my need for a box of tissues has moved seamlessly from "for a cold" to "for hay-fever", without the hint of a pause.  Hey ho!
Anyway, on to a bit of crafting, and today is launch day for the April Sketch over on The Sketch File Blog.

I like this one a lot - I feel there's lots of opportunities to use the LO in different ways, so fingers crossed that actually is how it works out.  Sometimes the ones I think are the most versatile are the ones I struggle with when I come to use them.  Weird.

I've a load of 'boy' birthdays coming up in may, so I've used the sketch to make one of the cards I need.
I cut a square for grey Bazzill card, then a frame from dark blue card using two Nested Squares (Tonic dies).
the stars and paper strips are old Funky Hand papers - one of my favourite sets for more masculine cards, the blues and greys are just fab.  
The two larger stars are from another Tonic nested set, the tiny ones are cut with a punch, from some foiled paper as the card looked a bit dull.
'Happy Birthday' is by Creative Dies

 Here's the sketch:

It would be great to have your company over at The Sketch File this time - we'd love you to join in with us.
Thanks for looking in today, hope you'll have time to leave a message

Fabulous card from a great sketch Kathy. Love the stars. Hayfever has hit here too, seems far earlier than normal. I keep waiting to grow out of it! Cathy x
