American Crafts DP showcase....

Yeah! It's the weekend! Do you have any special plans?
Tonight I'm meeting my friend Peggy from Paper Works. I am getting the Long Rectangle Nesties from her store and I can't wait! She's been a doll to hold them for me til we could meet tonight. Tomorrow we are meeting my girlfriend from Calgary. It'll be a surprise for Chloe!
Yesterday's Ways To Use It Challenge on SCS was Charms. I looked through and couldn't find any SU! things to use so there is no SU! only card today....lol
I did however find these little star charms in my drawer. They went well with the American Crafts DP and the SU! set In the Stars.
Not sure you have noticed but I always try to co-ordinate my colours, paper and embellishments. I see other people make cards that the ribbon is a different colour or something and they MAKE it work AND it looks good! I try....I fail....lol
So anyway....back to my card....this was what I came up with.
Stamps: In The Stars; Cardstock: Cool Caribbean, Choc Chip, WW and American Crafts DP; Inks: Old Olive; Accessories: SU! Scalloped Edge Punch, Mat Pack and Paper Piercer, Choc Chip Ribbon, Misc Star Charm, Dimensionals
It's been a couple of weeks since I had a little extra time to play along with the MFT sketch on SCS. Cindy always has wonderful sketches! Unfortunately, the image I used was a little big for the sketch ;)
Stamps: MFT Here's The Scoop; Cardstock: Pink Pirouette, Choc Chip, WW and American Crafts DP(both sides); Inks: Choc Chip and Memento Black; Accessories: Copic Markers, Primas, White Brads, Choc Poly Twill and Dimensionals
Thanks for stopping by today!

One of the reasons I love your cards IS the coordination of all the elements...so keep doing what you do best! Plus your cards are also adorable!
