Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 252-To the Stars and Back

It's time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge.  I ordered some new goodies from Mama Elephant earlier this week and they showed up in my mailbox yesterday afternoon, so I couldn't resist trying them out for today's sketch.

To the Stars and Back card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from Mama Elephant
I used the sweet girlie from the Shooting Stars set.  She was colored with Copic markers, then cut out with the matching die.  I used foam tape to adhere her to a simple scene made from blue dotted patterned paper and a green cardstock strip cut along the top edge with one of ME's Landscape Trio dies.  I stamped one of the set's sentiments in black ink  along the bottom of the green panel.

After matting the scene on blue cardstock and adhering it to a pale gray cardstock panel, I added a blue fishtail flag strip on top.  A gold stitched star set on the edge of the fishtail flag strip with foam tape completed the design.

To play along, just create a card based on the sketch and link it up on Karen’s blog. For lots of inspiration be sure to check out what the other Sweet Sunday Sketch stampers have created for you this week. Here’s where to find them:
