Just stars??

Hello everyone! I am on a mission to get some sympathy cards stored up for times of need. I used this sketch #106 from CPS. It definately got me thinking differently.

I choose to flip it so the main images were on the top. It also has some different colors brayed to try and imitate the swirls in the sketch, I think it is hard to see that detail.
I punched the starts out and used packing tape on the back of the punches so the sticky side was up. I then poured dazziling diamonds so the stars are really sparkly and fun. The stiching was something to try and tie it all in. I love this saying as well about stars, it makes me tear up thinking about those that have gone before us.
I am waiting for a Stampin Up order and a My Favorite Things order to come in. There are also really fun things happening at GKD and Papertrey Ink, so this week is going to be so much fun.
It's a good life!
