You're a Star Sketch

A new sketch is posted at the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge Blog!  This week is a design by DT member Belinda Chang Langner!


...and here is my card


Loved this banner patterned paper from the Simple Stories "Fabulous" collection.  Thought they went perfectly with sentiments from Say It Loud!


I fancied up an old manilla tag that I got in a package one time!  Cut it into a new shape with the  Papertrey Ink Tag Sale #5 die and then stamped it with the herringbone pattern from Little Box Labels.  Used the plaid stripe and chevron pattern (on the center star) from Off Beat Backgrounds.  The stars were cut with dies from A Muse Studio and the button is from Basic Grey.  I think I went a little overboard with Belinda's simple sketch!!  :)

Can't wait to see your lovely tags with this sketch!  Upload your creation HERE by next Friday, August 3rd. Be sure to include at least one Waltzingmouse Stamps image on your project to be eligible to be the randomly-selected player who will win a WMS stamp set of choice!
