Wish upon a Star

Here’s my card for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch. I made a simple and sweet square card using stamps and dies from Clear and Simple Stamps.

I started off with a blue gingham patterned paper panel. It makes a perfect background for the two gold stars I strung on shimmery gold twine. The stars were cut from CSS’s shiny 24 Karat Gold cardstock with the Shapes: Stars dies and adhered to the panel with foam tape. Once they were in place, I stamped the “wish upon a star” sentiment on the panel and heat embossed it in gold to match the stars. I layered the panel on a teal mat, then set it on a coordinating light blue cardfront.
