Lucky Stars - Lucky Me!

Here's my card for this week's OWH Stars and Stamps Sketch Challenge #159.
I feel so honored to know that OWH saw this card that I posted back in November, and turned it into a sketch for this week's challenge! Whee!!! Thanks OWH, you really turned this into a special day!

As always, I tweaked the sketch a little as I was creating, and used some SB squares and scalloped squares instead of a heart. I colored some stars with Copics, adding brads and punched stars in coordinating colors, along with some red twine around the bottom. I used a die cut border on the bottom only because I had no matching ribbon. The border was done with a SNSS border die, and I also cut another one using red & white striped dsp and added those colorful stars to the pacific point card stock border. The background was embossed with a CB star ef in keeping with the stars theme.

Here's this week's sketch:

Thanks for stopping by, and thanks to OWH for showcasing my card in such a special way! I'm absolutely honored and delighted :)

Now go have a fabulous day!

Big congrats on having your design turned into a sketch!!!

I like what you've done with this card, repeating the star motif. I especially love the puffy, striped star--it's just so cute.
