Kick Up Your Heels

Good morning!  Happy Saturday!  Hope your weekend is off to a great start!  It's looking to be a beautiful weekend here, sunny and close to 70.  Can't beat that after all the rainy days we've had!  Before I head out for the day, I'm here with a quick post to share the card I made for Mayzy Art Challenge #12, where the theme is "stars".  I decided to have a little fun with this one!

Here is my card:

My card base is SU Blue Bayou and the piece of patterned paper in the center is from the Authentique Celebrate 6x6 pad.  The red Happy Birthday frame was cut with my Cameo using a cut file from Krewella Kreations.  The large star in the center also uses a cut file from Krewella Kreations.  You can find both on Leza's blog here.   My fun image is Digi Dancer: Break Dance from Mayzy Art.  I printed it on Make it Colour Blending Card and colored it with my Copics. I cut it out with my Cameo and popped it up over the star with foam tape.  There is a bit of Red Stickles on her belt, and shoes, but it's kind of hard to see in the photo.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  A few stars punched from red, blue and dark grey glitter paper finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the image:

Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful weekend and see you soon!
