Tuesday Morning Sketches #158

I am so excited.. I won over at Tuesday Morning Sketches for last weeks challenge. I have never won a luck of the number draw before.. Maybe my luck is changing :).

Anyhoo, enough of my chair dancing. There is a new challenge over at Tuesday Morning Sketches, and Debbie has created a fabulous sketch.

I had so much fun with this card, but it took me forever. I had a vision ( as my trainer likes to say) and it worked. I was determined to make a pom pom from twine... wow, I have no idea where that patience came from, but in the end voila.. pompom.. out of twine.

There is lots and lot of texture on this card, and inky edges. I made the little party hat from DP, the sentiment I printed from Word. I finished with some paper star buttons.

The paper hat is two layers deep and popped up with foam tape on both layers. I also popped up the stars.
Supplies: Cream and brown cardstock, Designer Paper-My Min's Eye, There She Goes-Bits of Stardust, Spellbinders die cut, twine, misc punches, embossing folders.
