A Star is Born...The Twinery / SRM Event

It's Friday here at The Open Window
( and most likely where you are too  : )
and I'm excited to share today's post with you.

I love being a designer with The Twinery and especially when
we team-up with awesome companies.
It's Day #2 with

A variety of our designers have had a ball playing with
the beautiful stickers {and more} from SRM.
Of course, combined with what, in my opinion, is the
best baker's twine on the planet
our two teams have incredibly inspiring projects to share.

The majority of my card uses stickers from the 'We've Got Your Border'.
Banners & buntings are still quite trendy and my favorite go-to for
hanging them of course, is baker's twine from The Twinery.
I braided the colors Buttercream, Honeydew and Shore
and curved these fab stickers across the top of the card.

The panel of the card is embossed with the large dot EF from Cuttlebug,
but only 2/3 of the panel is embossed.  The flat 1/3 is decorated with more
sticker borders and the sentiment is also from SRM.

I went into my 'archives' stash and found the cute little metal star
from KandCompany and attached it to a baker's twine bow.

I am entering this into the Simon Says Stamp Challenge as well
as their theme is 'Anything Goes'


All you need to do is visit & comment on The Twinery's
participating designer's blogs.  Easy peasy!
A complete list for both days can be found on
The Twinery blog and to help you out, 
I am including it here as well.
You have a few days to get your visits in and there are
only 20 visits total
(including 2 at The Twinery)
Deadline to leave comments is 11:59pm EST
Sunday, April 29th.

I hope you enjoyed your visit today.
Make sure you leave a note before you leave and I'll
keep my fingers crossed for you!

I'm not usually one for white space, probably because I cannot keep it white, but on this card it is adorable. Congratulations on a stunningly beautiful and elegant card.
