Stars In Your Eyes

It's time for a new challenge at Scrapbook Sisters,hopefully you're going to like the theme for this week, "Stars"  The image is a Mo Manning stamped image coloured using Copics. The scrummie papers are by Fancy Pants and part of the "Rough and tumble" collection.They were part of a class kit a couple of weeks ago. I cut some stars using a Sizzix die embossed them and distressed them using chalk eyes.

 A while back I kept the ribbon that was wrapped around a new M&S shirt, there was writing stitched in to the black tape using cream and gold thread. I turned it over and added it in loops at the edge of the paper. I love the look,makes me think of piano keys.

Then all that was needed was some doodled stitches and a sentiment.

I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
Stamping Boutique 12,Young male birthday,
Cupcake 154,Stitching,
MIM49, Anything goes,
Cardmakin Mamas 26, Birthday cards,
That's it from me till tomorrow,thanks for stopping by,

Hi Julie
This is such a fantastic card for the male of the species, I always think male cards are the most difficult! Love the papers you have used and the colour combo.
