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 too...so 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.
