CCT Seeing Stars

As promised, I'm back with my DT card for Cute Card Thursday's challenge to reach for the stars!  I've not added it to the CCT blog, just in case I mess up the entries so far .. ..   Our sponsor for this challenge is Nikki at Bunny Zoe's crafts, and Nikki has a 15% off weekend sale currently running .. .. I must go take a look!

My card is a simple little 5" square that I make for the Children's Hospice shop in Tavistock (DH delivers them when he's over that way) so there's not too many embellishments and no specific text.  I started out with the Handyman Don stamp from the Don and Daisy collections by Marianne Design then after I'd stamped him up I masked him and added the fence from the Summer scenery set.  I've coloured with my Copic pens, and added my signature faux embossed stitching around the edges of the layers then highlighted with a sandy-brown chalk ink.  Here's the card:

I couldn't resist using some of the papers in the new Garden Party pad PK9108, even if some of the bits are cut off left-overs from another project I've been working on - don't waste a thing!  I even used the tiniest pieces to punch out the stars for the theme - stars always work well with masculine designs I think. I've only used a couple of Marianne Design dies on this card:  the text comes with the banner die set COL1324, and then the corner is cut from COL1342 with the bit I cut off added at the bottom.  I'm always snipping my die cuts apart to create more looks, I'm sure Marianne wouldn't mind.

The Creative Card Crew are looking for masculine cards and Marianne is one of the sponsors this time too, fingers crossed then!
