Inspired by All the Little Things #71

The photo inspiration at Inspired by All the Little Things Challenge #71 grabbed me by my love of all things gray, and a certain new little Star die!


Varied widths of stripes were created by masking and blending with Altenew Industrial gray.  That beautiful little star is one of my purchases from the craft show I attended  - Ellentina is the brand, called Long Stars, it contains four sizes - and I love one embossed on the next!  A few of my favorite snowflakes from Reverse Confetti, along with a Jolly little sentiment from Wplus9, completes my card!

What a striking card, Michele. The dark gray and red look amazing together. Fabulous star and pristine stripes sure help those snowflakes pop. Ohhhh and the jolly heat embossed. Wow! Looks fantastic!

This is such a striking card, Michele! I love how you have interpreted the photo onto your card. I have been eyeing this challenge and have yet to create a card. I think I need to work on it today! xoxo

The red star looks so elegant on the gray and white stripes, Michele, and I love that they're varied in width. Another gorgeous creation from the QDC.

I absolutely adore this card, so much so that I went on a scouting mission for those stars that you've showcased so beautifully! I can't figure out their shipping to Canada, but if it's reasonable, these babies are coming to live at my place! Also: a multitude of Happy Birthday wishes coming your way; may your day be filled with celebration, joy and love! More of the same for the year to come! Apologies for not sending a card; apparently I've lost track of time, of occasions, of...well, nearly everything! Hope you'll forgive me! Stay tuned for another occasion, though *grin*
Hugs and love~c

LOVE this Michele! Strips, stripes, I haven't used them yet this year for Christmas! You are so fun and inspiring!

Barb Ghig said...

Happy, Happy Birthday, my friend!!! May all of your birthday wishes come true!

This is such a 'Classy' card, Michele! The stars are gorgeous and work so well with those elegant snowflakes...WOW! I think embossing the smaller star makes them look like quilted fabric (on my screen, at least) and your dark gray striped background is sheer perfection! You have showcased all of the elements on this card beautifully...I love it!
