October Afternoon Weekly/2 Peas Sat Card Sketch Challenge

I chose to combine two challenges into one this week.....I've been wanting to play with my new Sasparilla papers from October Afternoon and when I saw Kimber's Card Sketch Challenge this week I immediately envisioned circles with stars in them. This affect worked well for the negative/positive challenge at October Afternoon it just made sense to combine them both.

So here is the sketch I based my card on:

And then October Afternoon challenged us to use both the positive and the negative space from a die-cut shape...this is what I came up with:

To create the little circle/star embellies...I punched my star out of the center of my circle and then using dimensional adhesive I attached it to a second circle of pattern paper (making a mini shadow box, basically). Then I added a mini staple for added design and texture.

October Afternoon Supplies Used: Patterned Paper - Sasparilla (Wide Open Spaces, Giddy up, Stage Coach) ; Holiday Style (Toyland); Campfire (Sleeping Bag); Campfire Word Stickers 
Other Supplies Used: Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher; Tim Holtz Distresss Ink - Vintage Photo; Sentiment - Stampin' Up - FYI; Star Punch - EK Success; Spellbinders Nestabilities - Classic Circles; Photo Corner - Misc.

Thanks for looking!
