Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration November Card Sketch Challenge: Many Merry Stars

It's the start of the another week, can you tell me where that weekend went?  We had a great time in Annapolis checking out the city and my friend and I ran the Across the Bridge 10K run over the Bay Bridge it was a beautiful race that a lot of runners got to enjoy!)  It's the second Monday of the month which mean's over on the Stampin' Stylin' INKspiration blog it's time for the monthly card sketch challenge.  Bree gave us another fun layout and the designers really out did themselves with great inspiration ideas.  I decided to combine this challenge with my 30-Day Gratitude card challenge (I'm doing that a lot this month) and decided to use some Christmas products that are new and haven't seen a lot of love yet.

The cardbase is Garden Green and I added a piece of DSP from the Trim the Tree Designer Series Paper Stack (love all the different colors and patterns in this pack which means lots of fun!)  Next I added a piece of Cherry Cobbler 1" Sheer Linen Ribbon that was attached to the cardfront with Sticky Strip so I could get the ruffled effect.  For the stamped image I used the new Many Merry Stars stamp set from the Holiday Supplement (products in this mini catalog are only available while supplies last) and the medium star was stamped with Garden Green ink on Pistachio Pudding cardstock before being cut out with the Big Shot and Star Collection Framelits.  I stamped the filler star inside with Pistachio Pudding ink.  The greeting is from the Something to Say stamp set and is stamped in Cherry Cobbler Ink.  I attached the star to the cardfront using dimensionals (I actually stacked dimensionals to get extra height to reach over the ribbon).  I used some Cherry Cobbler Baker's Twine to tie a bow for the top of the star and attached it with a glue dot.  For a little touch of bling I punched a small star out of Gold Foil Paper using the star punch from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack and attached it to the cardfront .

I love how each element of this card turned out.  Make sure to check out all the other cards the design team is sharing and then come play along with us.
