Star Spirelli

Here's a quick card I made this morning:


I was really intrigued by the "Spirelli" technique challenge at Crafting by Designs. I actually had a turquoise embroidery thread remnant (DMC Fluorescents) that was just enough for this project. I cut the starry shape with a die from a•muse studio, and used a Recollections punch for the tiny stars in the corner. 

The star-shaped, music-patterned stamps are from a set that came a Crafts Beautiful Magazine; and the sentiment stamp is from a Teddy Bo set, another magazine freebie, this time from Simply Cards & Papercraft. The sentiment is heat-embossed with a yellow power from Creative Zoo. The ribbon is from my stash, and the star-patterned Kraft DP is from My Mind's Eye. I finished the card with a machine-stitched border using yellow thread.


Inspiration/Challenges:
Card Mania: Color combo
Cards in Envy: Sketch
Crafting by Designs: Spirelli 


Update: This card was chosen as the winner of our Try a New Technique challenge at Crafting by Designs for the month of February! Wow!
