Sketch Saturday - Sketch #314

Simon Says Stamp! is the sponsor of Sketch Saturday's 314th sketch.  I'm usually a little more literal with my take on sketches, but this one keeps the basic layout with some artistic license!  This free sentiment from TLC is the focal point.  It happened to come when a couple of my friends were going through a rough time . . .  perfect timing for creating a card.  I knew right away I wanted to use the Starry Die I bought on sale from Verve Stamps.  I popped the main panel out, put some patterned paper behind the cut stars and glued the polka dot die cuts onto the sentiment panel.  I added a few yellow sequins and was done!  I really like how this turned out.

For all of you die cut lovers, a new challenge blog just launched today!  It's called The Cutting Edge. It runs from Saturday through Thursday each week.  Who doesn't love a new challenge!
