Birthday Stars!

Hi, I can't believe I've made 2 cards in 1 day!! At least the washing is pegged out. Sadly, the rest of the housework is being neglected!

This is my entry in the Simon Says Stamp & Show Challenge - Seeing Stars.
Join in at http://www.simonsaysstampandshow.blogspot.com.au/
 
I cut these stars out using my MFT country charms die, and glued 2 of each together to make them sturdy enough to thread the ribbon through. The silk ribbon is gorgeous to touch, a friend cleaned out her embroidery scraps :)
Materials used: stars embossing folder; MFT country charms die; silk ribbon.; foam dots; sentiment sticker from stash.
 
Thanks for looking :)

    1. Hi Helen, the ribbon was that colour. A friend gave me her embroidery scraps that she got from a place called Colour Streams, they hand dye their products :)
