Star Male.

Here I go again,removing bits from my cards lol, it's quite addictive! I find myself planning entries for the LIM challenge when I'm desperately trying to sleep. This card however happened when I got cross that the planned card wasn't going right,spat the dummy and started throwing bits away and piling up my offcuts,  it's surprising what a black strip of card and a green star can spark off. 

So I layered up my card, used an long forgotten Anita's stamp and Bamboo Momento, a large sentiment which I stamped in black. I cut a green star using my Xcut nesting and removed the centre with a smaller star in the set then removed a star from the black strip which happened to be a tiny bit smaller than the Xcut die (still with me?) this gave the nice black frame to my green star. I then just remove a small circle from my card front making it easier to place the star in the correct place. You can see that I placed a green star on the inside of my card to mask the circular cut. I thought it would be in keeping to add a star to write on.

I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
TTT26,Text Me,
Truly Scrumptious 72,Something forgotten,
TSB24, Die cuts,
LIM 51 Theme.
Off top pop this card in the post, why do I always leave making cards to the last minute.
Thanks for stopping by,
