Flowers + Stars = Fun

Don't you just love happy accidents? This card was one of them. I had lots of miscellaneous scraps and die cuts on my table and I put them all together and voila! Ha. I really love the sparkly star as the center of my flower. Don't know that I would have done that if it hadn't been sitting on my table. I think I'll do it on purpose another time.

The "you" is cut from patterned paper. I like how it adds a bit of texture to it while still leaving it readable. The flower is a die cut from a MME sheet of die cuts (I didn't use my dies to make it.)

Do you have plans for the upcoming weekend? Friends have invited us to a block party in their neighborhood. We went last year and we ran into all kinds of people that we knew. Should be a fun time. They're excited about serving "chicken and dressing sandwiches" but Matt and I aren't really sure what those are. Apparently they're a big deal from their home town. Guess I'll have to try one for myself.

Make it a great one! :)

Oh, I love your card, Jennifer! It's so great when I can pull together some scraps and make something else!
My son Austin is getting baptized tomorrow, so I'm getting ready for the lunch we're hosting afterwards (cleaning the house, making food, etc.) I'm hoping it won't take all day though and that I'll have time to stamp a little today, too.
Take care and enjoy your block party! (Those chicken and dressing sandwiches sound interesting... like stuffing dressing?)

This is such a bright and cheery card, Jennifer. The glittery star is unexpected, but really is a great touch on your card. It's hot and sunny here; looking forward to a few days of bar-b-queing and meals on the deck. We'll have cooler days soon enough!! Have a great week-end.

Such a funky, fresh card Jennifer - it'd definitely make anyone feel fabulous!! Such a great idea to use the star for the flower centre! Thank you so much for the sweet comment you left on my modern birthday card - it meant so much!
