For today's card I decided to play with Sweet Sunday's Sketch Challenge #274. I loved the simple design of this sketch! The possibilities were endless.
I originally thought I was going to use a flower as the accent piece instead of the star and use some nice floral paper. As you can see, that's NOT how it turned out! After looking through my papers I decided I needed to make a more masculine card. Patriotic themed paper is always appropriate for the men in your life. Still thinking I was going to use a circle accents, I searched through my stamps and my embellishments. I found a package of star and gem Christmas ornament stickers from Jolee's Boutique. It was my lucky day. To pick up on the gold accent of the star, I gold embossed the cardstock beneath the pattern paper. Added banner and voila', the perfect male card!
