Hello dear!
Today I have a fun card that I made for this little challenge that my upline Mary (Click HERE to go to her lovely blog, Stampin' Pretty!) offers us on our private FB page :-)

So Mary has this guy called "Bandit" lurking around our Pals Gallery looking for a project, and each week he looks for a specific theme. This week, He is looking for a project that was CASE'd from the samples in the current Stampin' Up! catalogs. Of course we get to add our own twists to it ;-)

I picked this awesome card from page 42 in the Annual Catalog.
(click HERE for the catalog PDF to see!)
I made a quite few changes but kept the design since it is just lovely!

It was a sample using the stamp set "Be the Star", but I do not own the stamp set, so I substituted it with the retired sets "Many Merry Stars" and "Simply Stars". I heat embossed my stars with Pool Party, and instead of making 2 stars, I made that little border using the die from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Die Set. I also die cut the sentiment from the same set. It was sewn onto the star, and the border was sewn onto my favorite Typeset SDSP. I love how it is peeking through the little stars!

I am not sure if the sample used the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp set for the background, it looks more like random splatters. I used the Gorgeous Grunge set for mine ;-) Those tiny stars are another star from the Many Merry Stars set. 
I sewed 3 star sequins right onto my base, I used 2 whites and 1 black instead of all whites. 

This was super fun to make, and I just love how it turned out!
