Welcome!  If you just got here from Amy's blog you are in the right spot.  For my card I am using Verve's Shining Star and Wishful Elegance stamp sets.  I combined these sets with Verve's Cut Above Scalloped Trim Trio (stars) die and the newly released Award Banner Trim dies. 
I added some sewing machine stitching mixed with some fun pattern papers and a few touches of glitter for added star sparkle.

As always thanks so much for hopping by!  Next on the hop is Jessica!


And since World Card Making Day is the official start to the holiday card making season, Verve has a 25% off sale on Christmas stamps this weekend only!
