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! :)
