You're An All Star!

Hi everyone!  Happy Wednesday!!  It's time for another MFT Sketch Challenge, MFTWSC17! 

Of course, it's another FABULOUS sketch, and that long vertical panel was screaming at me to use an á la mode!    The á la modes in All Star was the lucky winner today!! 

I stamped her onto X Press It Blending Card and colored her with Copic Markers.  I paper pieced her flap and then rolled it a bit and popped it up for some dimension.  All of the patterned paper is Little Boy from Echo Park Papers.  I added two green brads to the focal panel for a bit of pop.

I cut out some stars using my beloved Die-Namics Stacking Stars Dies and layered them, along with a little sentiment flag which reads "You're An All Star".  Two borders on the sketch were created with the Die-Namics Star Border Die.  Love that!


For the inside, I kept it super simple.  A bit more patterned paper from Little Boy, and then I stamped "Way to go" repeatedly across horizontally.  Love the simple look of this, and it still leaves plenty of room for a personal message.


Here are the Die-Namics I've used on my card:
