Bright Star with Gingham

Like yesterday, my card today has a bold design with bright colors on gray.  I especially like the two gingham prints together, the bright layered star, the dark gray card base, and the offset placement of the yellow-green gingham. 

The layout and color scheme were CASEd from this card by Paula S.  I made a number of changes, but it's easy to see how I followed her ideas.  Thank you, Paula!  

Card details:
  • Card stock is Ellen Hutson white linen, Papertrey Ink (PTI) raspberry fizz (bright pink), limeade ice (bright yellow-green), smokey shadow (dark gray), and the gingham print from PTI soft stone (light gray) and limeade ice pattern packs.
  • Dies are PTI seeing stars (medium die for pink star), My Favorite Things stacking stars (large outline die for yellow-green star), PTI sketched shapes (narrow banner with sentiment), and PTI double-ended banner (dark gray layer under sentiment.)
  • I used a 1/4" Fiskars star punch for the white star.
  • Sentiment "miss you..." is computer-printed in pink ink with Footlight MT Light font, bold, expanded character spacing.

The yellow gingham stands out nicely against the grey and this is a fun color combo. I like the layered stars too! I'm happy that you found a little inpsiration in my card. :)
