Star cards

Hi there friends, hope your weekend is going ok so far? Loving this warm weather we are having here at present, should be 24C on Monday too...whoo hoo...won't last of course lol !
Anyway I am just popping by to share my latest cards made for this week's 'Less is More' challenge.
They want us to use 'stars' this time and it's also the dreaded 'one layer' card week too. Yikes! ...my first thought was whatever will I make. Then I remembered an older stamp set I have with stars in it so I made a card using a few of the stamps in that set.

Of course when I had finished it I wasn't happy.....so I had another idea....like the LIM challenge...less really is more I thought......just keep it SS...or stupid simple! I found a nice sentiment stamp I like and silver embossed it. Then I drew a few stars and embossed them in silver too. A bit of watercolour in the background and it was complete. Am much happier with my simpler card ;)

A big welcome to all my latest followers also...welcome aboard and thanks for choosing to follow me.
I am back tomorrow with another 'reminder' card for 'The Flower Challenge', do help us celebrate our first birthday...there are prizes too! Of course as always....enjoy your weekend whatever you have planned ;)
