Star Shaped Card ..


Hope you're all having a fab weekend!

Here's my latest card - it was for my niece Molly on her 10th birthday.  I found a tutorial here and though to myself "that looks easy!". Let's just say it took longer than I thought it would - which I'm sure is more down to my lack of brains than anything else.  As always the picture is rubbish as I finished it late and it needed to go off in the post the next day!

Above is the card as you see it when it's opened out, (before I added the image), and below is the folded card.  I think it looks pretty swish even if I do say so myself.  I may make a few more of these for Christmas. The image is from Pollycraft.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Tuesday Throwdown - Think Pink
Crafty Creations - 3, 2, 1 (Three papers - the third is just just under the pink panel in the centre, 2 embellis - the ribbon and the little gems, and 1 image)
Lexis Creations - Pink for Boobies
Little Miss Muffet - Girly Girl
Di's Digital Designs - Girly Creations
The Stamping Boutique - Think Pink
Crafty Cardmakers - Anything Goes
Papertake Weekly - Get in Shape - my three shapes are the star, triangle and the wonky rectangle which a quick search on the net tells me is aIsosceles Trapezoid (you learn something everyday!)

Anyway - thanks for looking!!
