Hello Ladies ~ My card today uses stars as the focal image.

Well I made a list of all the tings I need to get done for the month of October.  Wow I will be very busy!  I need to get as much done as I can this week as I will also have a list of things I need to get done for November before I leave in 2 weeks.  I did manage to cross one thing off my list yesterday. I am hoping to cross off a few more today.  Wish me luck!

The challenge today for Card a Day Challenge blog is  

Mistletoe Monday:
Star or Stars

Stars are so fun to work with.  I began with a card base of Night of Navy.  Since I was going to be embossing, I rubbed the card front and sentiment panel with the Embossing Buddy so that no stray pieces of embossing powder would stick where I did not want them.  I inked the stars from the Perpetual Birthday Calendar stamp set with Encore Gold ink.  I then embossed them with Gold Embossing Powder.   I repeated until I was happy with my arrangement.  I then used the sentiment from Remarkable You and stamped it with Encore Gold ink and embossed with the Gold Embossing Powder.  I cut this panel down and mounted it onto a piece of Gold Foil sheet.  I added the sentiment with Stampin’ dimensionals.  I used the same Gold Foil sheet and punched out a star using the medium star punch.  I mounted this also with dimensionals.  While this is not a Christmas card, you could easily change to sentiment to one that would be used for the Christmas star.  Here is my creation.

Thanks for visiting me today.  I have a lot going on today so I hope I can find time to spend in my craft room.  Have a Marvelous Monday and if you need an idea for a card today, think stars!
