Special Little Star

As part of my 'Children's Collection' (basically, babies), I made this simple design to go to the shop.


The stars and sentiment are from Hero Arts' Year Round Sentiments.  The button and thread are both vintage.  So glad my aunt shared her treasure trove of buttons with me!  She's been collecting a long time. Thank you, Aunt Kay!


Love this little strip of whale paper.  It was in one of those $1 scrap bags from my Stampin' Up! demo, and it helped make a quick card.  I haven't bought a scrap bag in a long time.  I'm rather overloaded at the moment and am trying to make a serious dent in them!



Stamps: Year Round Sentiments - Hero Arts Paper: Barely Banana, whale pattern - SU Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black - Tsukineko Fibers: twill - SU; vintage thread Accessories & Tools: vintage button; marker - SU

Cute and so so sweet. Colleen this a bit more modern as usual. You are amazng with your elegant style but you should defintely make a card like this more often. The modern style fits you well!
