Stars and Swirls

Popping in for a quick H2H post today. My computer died yesterday so I am running behind but I did get a little time to put together a simple card for this week's H2H challenge which is all about color! Barn Red, Bamboo and your choice of Blue (or similar colors) are the palette we are working with - take a look:



I embossed the swirls onto the Bamboo panel with a Cuttlebug folder then added a strip of ribbon across the center of the card. On top of the ribbon are my cut out stars, stamped with images from the Wishing Star set. A couple of rhinestones finish it off! I chose not to add a sentiment as I am not sure yet what I might use this card for - might be for the 4th and it might be a graduation party coming up. Either way, I can pop on a sentiment at the last minute and I'm good to go!

Hope you'll join us at H2H this week where our current DT are wrapping up their time with us and we will be introducing new team members through out the week!

Great texture on this card Mary! So clean yet looks way more than simple...
Big HUGS for the opportunity to work on the H2H DT for the past 6 months. Not only did I get weekly motivation, but I got to make some friends along the way.
THANK YOU so much for hosting this challenge blog each and every week for all of us...you are truly appreciated for all of your work behind the scenes. Your burnt out computer can probably attest to the many hours you put in...

Keep in touch in blogland! You may not see me playing along with H2H much for the next few weeks as we are in full blown renovation mode, but I promise to come back to play as soon as I can!
