Featured Stamper & Verve Diva Challenge

Hey all! Today's Featured Stamper on SCS is Stephanie Hargis! I was excited to see Stephanie as this week's pick...love her cards! HERE'S her card that I chose to CASE.

I kept the same star theme, striped background (just split it with the stripes on the bottom and white at the top), and the same layout.

I added some layers, a star charm and gold cord, moved the sentiment (only because I glued down the main panel and THEN realized I forgot the sentiment..duh, huh?!), the second set of stars are up on dimensionals, and I moved the brads from the main panel to the corners of the card base.

I outlined the stars with SU markers. The Chocolate Chip mat layer behind the stars is also up on dimensionals.

The inside of the card includes a white panel with a small star stamped in the lower left corner in Old Olive and then a 1/4" strip of the So Saffron designer prints was added to the right of the star (great way to use up scraps of paper).

I also wanted to participate in the first Meet the Verve Divas Challenge. This week's host is Shannan and she chose a color challenge of Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, Pumpkin Pie, and So Saffron. GREAT colors, I like them together!
