STB 18 and CTS 31

The deadline is fast approaching so I have to get this post finished.  I almost forgot about the Seize the Birthday challenge this week.  It runs for two weeks and so I put it on the back burner.  I'm sure glad the DT sends reminders.

When I first saw the sketch, I was going to do something other than stars but changed my mind because I wanted to make the barn stars.

The stars are cut from a die from PTI then scored to the middle to make them 3 dimensional.  The paper is from my stash and the sentiment from PTI.

My other card is for CAS(E) this Sketch.

It took me a while to come up with an idea and I almost thought I'd skip the challenge this week.  I started thinking about what kind of cards I might need and once the sentiment came to mind, the design quickly followed.

You can't see it in the picture but I used a PTI texture plate on the background.  The cloud die and the sentiment are also from PTI. The sun is a punched circle, inked with a little Mustard Seed Distress Ink.  I also inked the bottom of the clouds with Iced Spruce.

Thank you for stopping by to visit.  Have a wonderful day and I hope you come back again.
