This morning I had a little time to visit one of my favorite blogs, "Sooner Rather Than Later." There I found a simply wonderful card by Miriam Prantner. It was the inspiration for the card below. To view her blog post, please click here. She sponged on vellum and got a really neat look. It's worth checking out. :-)
Here's my version:
I had some scrap paper laying on my work table from the last few projects, so I squared up four of the pieces to create a "paned window" card. To balance the word "Celebrate," I used the deeper Ruby shade in the opposite corner and stamped the majority of the star image on that scrap.
At the last moment I added a touch of black to the star shape. I was hoping to tie in the thin black frame but I almost think the three black stars are too much. What do you think?
