A Patchwork Star...WMSC35 62

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, February 19, 2011 @ 1:00 AM | , ,

Hi there! Here today with an all new sketch to play with for the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge! When I saw this sketch, so many quirky sayings ran through my mind such as Are you feeling a little star struck?, Do you see stars?, Stardom, Superstar, Shooting Star, Star gazing, etc...until I settled on   

A Patchwork Star:
When I first saw this sketch I immediately thought of using the gorgeous lacy star image from Seasons of Love - Tags but then I started to think outside the star :) and came up with the idea of making a patchwork star. I have been playing with the stamp set Nestie Eggs lately so since I had it out on my crafting table, I started stamping and die cutting away!
 Many moons ago, long before I began stamping, I used to do a lot of sewing and quilting. I felt right at home piecing these lil' paper squares :) After stamping and die cutting the square patches, I adhered them to a piece of cs, cut/embossed using a S4-092 Stars Five die template then stitched it on a gorgeous piece of Melissa Frances patterned paper. 
Thanks so much for visiting today~hope you like what you see :) Please be sure to stop by the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge site for some amazing inspiration from the Mischief Makers and several other Waltzingmouse DT members who played along:) I'll be back tomorrow with an all new CR84FN challenge. Be Sweet :)

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Waltzingmouse Say it with Style, Nestie Eggs
Die Templates and Machine: Spellbinders™ Nestabilities® S4-092 Stars Five, GC-001 Grand Calibur,  S4-126 Classic Squares LG
Patterned Paper: Melissa Frances
Ribbon: Vanilla Bean Vintage crinkly ribbon Courtesy of Kimberly @ My Craft Spot
