My First Challenge EVER!






I am so excited to post my first challenge ever! I have been checking out the Stamping 411 blog for awhile now, wanting to participate. I have actually used the sketch several times to design cards. This weeks challenge was a fun one. I wanted to do something a little different than the hearts (which are oh so cute). I decided to go with stars, two punches I have. I looked up at my ribbon display and saw a little spool of star ribbon which helped to dictate my colors. Besides the ribbon, all my stuff was from Stampin' Up. The base is whisper white, I have a layer of Sahara sand, and the stars are old olive, basic black, elegant eggplant, and summer sun (sadly, a retired color). Thanks for looking!

This card is a real star in my book. I know the ribbon was your inspiration, but I love your choice of colors. You convinced me I need that star punch I've been contemplating.
