Guess who is back!?
Ya ha it's me! And I have a card and eveeeeeeerything!
Before I go to that I will apologise for my very long absence, hubby and I have had an awful lot going on... I won't bore you with it but it looks like everything is going to be okay :) suffice to say time was not plentiful and unfortunately I had to quit two of my design teams... *sob*
I hope everyone here is well and I will be having a loooooooong look at all of your blogs again soon!
So that's that!
Now on to shiny card!
This card is for my brother-in-law to be! Paul is red and black and star mad! Hehe so this card is custom built for him!
It was my birthday last week and my wonderful hubby got me this:
So the card!
I had so much fun with this card! I followed the awesome sketch at Papercraft Star
The stars were done using my new shiny nesties!
Here is a couple of close ups
The funky letters were PAINFULLY cut from my awesome letters from Pink Petticoat! (Link below) I use these letters so much! Although my poor printer squeals every time I print them in black! I tried to do a couple of sticks coming out of the stars almost making it look guitar-y! He is a bit Rock 'N' Roll!
A bit of black bakers twine to tie it all together and I am done! Its very much his style!
