A Star


Making the cheer squad. An exemplary test score.  An engagement. A promotion. A pregnancy....
She is a Star and Congratulations are in order.

I am smitten with the star from Rejoice! -one of the stamp sets released today from Practicing Creativity Designs- and knew that it would be awesome when used in a completely different setting than the holidays. I studded this card up with everything shiny that I had to create that awestruck feeling-Glimmer Mist, Stickles and Rhinestones! A large sentiment from Chatterbox completes the look. I also just love how the misting makes an everyday, upcycled object, such as the inside of an envelope, look spectacular and oh so different!


(Check out what Amy Duff can do with upcycled items...she is having a challenge as the guest designer on Yvonne's blog!)

Supplies Used:
Cardstock: (White) Georgia Pacific
Stamps: (Star from Rejoice!, sentiment from Chatterbox) Practicing Creativity Designs
Ink: (Onyx Black) Versafine
Embellishments: (Rhinestones) Hero Arts, (Vintage Pink Glimmer Mist) Tattered Angels, (Ice Stickles) Ranger
Other: (Envelopes)
