Starry, starry sketch

Before I get started, I wanted to announce that I was the mystery blog last week for the Wed. MyGrafico Challenges blog hop so I had the honor of choosing a winner of the Circus set we worked with. So, using Random.org, the winner chosen was #14:

This is such a great sketch and I love your card. Fab idea to layer the buttons. They look amazing. This is my first MyGrafico bloghop but I'll be back for more now I know where you are. Lauren x

CONGRATULATIONS Lauren! Please email Martha at creatingisfun@live.com so she can send you that digi set!

This week on MyGrafico Challenges, we are working with a digi stamp set full of stars called, aptly enough, Stars Stamp set.

I created a sketch for Team B that included a star as the focal point but then went a different way with my card- take a look:

I decided not to create the obvious with the star in the middle. Instead, I used the stars to create my own patterned paper:

I colored the stars and then cut the piece to fit the card and ink distressed the edges and a little across the whole piece so it wasn't quite so white. Then I added it to the card base along with this colorful striped DP and for my focal point, I stamped a sentiment and added a circle window charm over it for some "pop".

That's one of the great things about digi stamps - how many different ways you can manipulate them!

I hope you'll play along with today's sketch. Check out the rest of the inspiration from Team B and then create your own card - post to your blog or other online gallery (use keyword MG 31) and then leave a link to it at the MyGrafico Challenges blog. We'd love to see what you create! And for even more inspiration and digi goodness, be sure to stop by the MyGrafico community page. MyGrafico will be celebrating their 1 year anniversary this Friday and there are sure to be some exciting things going on!!! Don't miss the fun!

Until next time - have a creative day!

I love how you did your sentiment! I love those stickers but can't seem to find any locally. I love how you did your stars too as the DP! Beautiful!
