Papercraft Star Challenge #113

Hi everyone!

I hope you've had a good week, so far.  It's been super, crazy busy for me, but that's usually how it goes as we near another end of month at work.  I'm happy to share another crafty project with you though.  The theme this week at Papercraft Star is:

This challenge, I was challenged, to include a star or stars on my project.  I've got tons of things I could have included, but ultimately, nothing was working.  Fortunately, I was able to pull something together. 
I'm the featured designer for this challenge, and I used some wonderful images from our sponsor The House Across The Bay.  Check them out!


And here's how my card turned out.

I am totally happy with it.  I printed the digi images in grayscale, so that I could use my distress inks on them.  I do hope I don't get in trouble for this.  I have to say my card is much better than expected, considering it was a last minute kind of thing. lol  My daughter's history teacher has been super helpful this school year, with tutoring, so I made this for her to give to him.  I think it's a pretty good attempt at a masculine card.  Hopefully, he'll appreciate it. 

I've included the following challenges in my card as well:

Crazy 4 Challenges #154 - Anything Goes w/A Fall Twist
Stampin Sisters in Christ #157 - Harvest/Fall projects (i used fall colors, hope that works)
Stamptacular Sunday Challenge #181 - Less Is More
Papertake Weekly - A Hazy Shade of Autumn
Use It Tuesday #39 - Anything Goes (my hoarded stash is the bakers twine, the red shimmery cardstock and button that i've had in my stash forever)

I do hope you'll head over to the Papercraft Star challenge blog to see what the other designers have created for you today.  We have an amazingly talented new designer joining us, starting this week.  Why not join us for this weeks challenge, and help us wish her a warm welcome! 
That's all for me today, but I'll be back soon with another something crafty.  Since work is chaotic, thank goodness for creative outlets like papercrafting!  :)
