Be The Star You Are - FMS140

LOVE the Sketch Challenge from Freshly Made Sketches Blog this week.    The moment I saw it, I knew I was going for my masking tape and ink pads!    I decided to use the new Stamp Set (Be The Star) and Star Framelits from the New Annual Catalog.    I was going to use the New In Colors (Lost Lagoon, Hello Honey and Tangelo Twist) but they were too dark for the card, so I went for my Brights (Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie).     I wanted to make sure the sentiment was placed perfectly inside the star, so I pulled out my Stamp-a-ma-jig (A MUST HAVE TOOL).   

I hope you enjoy my project!!
