For my project today, I was assigned the new Seeing Stars stamp set. which is the TAM set this month. If you purchase $60 of regular product, you get this one for free this month. Which is also a nice bonus, aye?:) And because it is almost impossible for me to use only one stamp set, I have the new Bold Buzzwords here as well. Love Kim's handwriting. (Funny story, there was a handwritten note from her in one of my packages and I was so tickled to learn that she actually does write this way in real life. How lucky is that? I've got chicken scratch myself.) 

Design-wise, I stamped the star border three times in a rainbow of pastels across the bottom of my card. I then took some rectangle dies and cut shapes out of matching cardstock and put them across the top of my card to serve as a back drop for my black sparkly stars. One star fits into the star strips and adds the dot to my word "friends". 

Lots of good things these next two months. I'm itching to make my Tick Tock project! Super fun set. Hopefully I'll be back here soon with that. 

Thanks for stopping by!
