Color Throwddown #305- Lucky Stars!!

Hey, Happy Wednesday... I'm thinking I'm wishing it's Friday :) Busy week!

Lori's the hostess this week and here are the colors...

So I played with some new goodies... trying to us my NBUS (as Darnell would say)

Sponged the colors onto white cardstock and stamped the sentiments and the "falling star" with basic gray and heat embossed with clear onto vellum and laid that over my sponged panel to soften it a little. The moon and star are from the same set... stamped and fussy cut. The adorable wooden stars are from Pretty Pink Posh.

Our August Guest Designer is Jodi Collins from Stampin a Latte!

This week's Guest Star Stamper is Maura here.

Such a pretty card, Vickie! I love how the vellum softened the colors and the stars are so fun. I'm so glad I got to "guest design" with all of you this week!

Julia Aston said...

Hi Vickie! Your background is so pretty - at first I thought you watercolored it - the vellum overlay gives the same impression!
