Happy Friday!

Happy Friday everyone! I am ready for a fun but busy weekend! I have some of my favorite challenges to catch up on first though. This week at colourQ #151 I was so excited about the color combination. Some of the Design Team used Halloween based themes for these colors which I thought worked perfectly!! I will be doing this in the future but ended up working on a masculine birthday card for this challenge...
One of my most favorite stamp sets is Circle Circus. It is so much fun to use when I want to make my own stamped designer paper. I used the new Finishing Touches Edgelits to add a little splash of Tempting Turquoise to the edge of the stamped paper. I also found that the square shaped Apothecary Accents Framelits fit perfectly over the Decorative Label Punch. I added a new star over the Word Play stamp. This is the star from Itty Bity Stamp set with the matching punch. I used the same punch to add the dots around the big circle. I loved the dimension this added to the card and it will still fit into a standard envelope.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
