A Forever Friend Star

The challenge on Cute Card Thursday is stars at nigh - something spooky or stars. I don't do Halloween cards as a rule so have gone with the stars theme. I built the card around these HOTP papers from an old QVC kit, think the colours are great for a man's card.

I've gone for overkill with the stars lol, but the left border looked a bit bare so I decided to put the sizzix stars along that edge.

I coloured the image with the usual distress inks/H2O's. The papers are from the QVC HOTP TSV from last year (I think).
Sentiment is Cuddly Buddly
The stars are from the Sizzix stars die
The star clip was in amongst a fab surprise gift off my friend Alice.
I thought the burgundy paper looked a bit bland when the card was assembled so I doodled some stitching around the edge with a gel pen.
The zig-zag border is a Martha Stewart punh - love this one, it embosses as well as punches.

I'll be back later on today with my Sarah Kay challenge card, see ya later - have a fab Sunday

Thanks for looking,
