Star Turn

Hello.  Welcome.  There's a fun paper patchwork tutorial over at MFP this week.  Use up those scraps!!  I am so into that at the moment.  I'm also into square so I decided to make square panels for a square card.  And blue.  You can't ever have enough blue......

I cut my panels from scraps and stamped them with this fun little starry swirl stamp from Rubber Dance Winter Wonderland set.  The star and the thank you are from MFP USA Heroes stamp set.   I love the stitched edge and the buttons cos they always remind me to use some real buttons.  I have a whole box of buttons, that rarely get used, so I had a look through the blue ones and found a few small ones that seemed to fit.  It looked a bit unfinished still so I added some faux stitching around each panel.  

Feeling very inspired at the moment.  So many fun things happening.  Stay tuned.  I am thinking of having a bunny hop......  Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz
