MelJen's Designs Challenge #91 - Stars

Hello Again Everyone!! I am on a roll here!! I am loving these challenges and MelJen's is one of my favorites! Her images are super cute and fun to color!! Checkout Mel's Blog here.. and visit her shop here! You can't pass up some affordable $1.00 digis either!

So this week's challenge over at MelJen's blog is "Star" and for this challenge I have super sweet Girl and Her Kitty done with super cute pink and green patterned paper. I printed her on 80# card stock and colored her with my Copics. I cut her out using the largest die cut from Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels 14 that my sister bought for me for my birthday! (Thank you Chrissy, I love you!) and inked the edges of all the papers to really tie them into together.. although, I do love inking/sponging whether it needs it or not! lol! Finally, I stamped my sentiment "for you friend" from Gina K's Nature's Greetings Stamp Kit, which I absolutely love! And punched it out using my EK Success 1" circle punch. I finished the inside to compliment your note.

Since the challenge is for "stars" I had to throw some on there. Funny though, just a couple days ago my mom and I were at Hobby Lobby and I found several star punches and embossing items I wanted.. I went with hearts instead and so had to improvise for this challenge. I decided to pull out my star brads from Christmas and add them.. I think they really pop on this card and add a very fun and bright element! 

This card will be entered into Challenge #91 "stars"  over at MelJen's Blog.
