Shine Like The Stars

I have been using the Twinkle Twinkle Designer Series Paper recently, mostly for baby cards. You can see one of them here. This DSP is great for baby cards, but also lots of other types of cards. My card today was not for a baby, but instead S.B. (Sweet Boyfriend!). Our first date was on the 27th, so we set aside the 27th of each month and do our best to celebrate our relationship. It is kind of a date night, but we rarely go out. Instead we will often cook a great meal together, enjoy some wine, and slow down a bit in our hectic lives to enjoy each other and time together. He brings me flowers every month, and I make him a card. Today’s card is the one I made for August 27th. He loves sitting on the dock at the cottage just looking at all the stars and the wonder of the universe beyond us, so the DSP of a night sky with stars twinkling was perfect for him.

After I selected my DSP, I wasn’t quite sure what I wanted to put on the front. I wanted some words to let him know my love for him was as big as the universe. I decided the word LOVE from the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits would say what I wanted, and as I went to use the thinlit I noticed the layered heart thinlit. I hadn’t been thinking of this one when I reached for the thinlits, but it too was perfect for my card! I added some Basic Jewels Clear Rhinestones to let him know he is my shining star and my card was complete.
