Reach for the Stars Card

Hello everyone :-D  

I just finished this Reach for the Stars Card

I used {heart} sketches sketch089 with a twist for my card layout. Twist was to use a tag. I didn´t use any sentiment. There was also an inspirational color board. Beautiful color combination, but I didn´t used it this time. I like this sketch by Imke Ludvig a lot and I am sure I´ll use it again.

Card dimensions are 143 mm x 98 mm (5 5/8" x 3 7/8").

I called my card as From the Heart Stamps 'Reach for the Stars Snowman' digital stamp I used. Super cute stamp. :-D 

Image is paper pieced and it has two layers. I printed one image on white paper, colored it, fussy cut it, colored edges and layered it over the other image printed on patterned paper. I love using patterned paper as image´s background. I added pearl maker to accent snowflakes on patterned paper and to accent snow below snowman. When the image was completely dry, I cut out tag shape, punch hole in it, added some ribbon and my tag was finished. I added some dimensional tape behind the tag and placed it to the card. I wanted to pop-up the tag because it came out really nice. :-D
