Freshly Made Sketches 76

I began a card last week with an idea in mind that never really materialized.  But the pieces I cut for that card have sat there on the counter staring at me every day since then, so I finally grabbed them today and tried something different with them, with a lot of help from Freshly Made Sketch #76.

Neglected supplies used here are the Super Stars and Star Prints stamp sets.  I think this is the first time I’ve used this particular Think Big Favorites sentiment, too.  And in retrospect, I wish I would have used one of the featured colors for that sentiment, instead of black.   And I really did want to use something other than so much white – I just couldn’t wrap my brain around the logistics of colors and patterned papers today.

Again, I just feel blessed to have found time to create something right now!

  1. Great card! I too have neglected the same wonderful stamp sets! I love the white background as well as the black sentiment. Beautifully done, Ally thanks for hanging out at my blog for a while the other day. It was so good to hear from you. I feel a card with stars on it coming up soon! Thanks for the inspiration : )

  2. I love this star card! Funny I just used my stars for my grandsonsBD card and up until then I had not used them . Love the way you used them, such a fun card! I am glad you got some crafting time in too!

  3. Fabulous card Allyson! I love those stars! They are perfect on this card! That lace border is beautiful! Thanks for joining us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!
