One Stitch at a Time Challenge 97

This week at One Stitch at a Time, our theme is Round and Round. We're sponsored by
This week I worked with an image from Gingerloft which is available at Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps. It's called Swing on a Star, and I've got to warn you. If you're like me, you'll be singing the song for days!
Although there is a sentiment included with the image, due to the theme of the challenge, I made my own, adding it around the image in Photoshop Elements before printing. I coloured the image with Promarkers. Then, I set to, in Elements again, and designed a background paper to work with it. After that, I put together a sentiment, punched a star, and went rooting about in my embellishment box. Now, at the top of the card, there's a irridescent glass moon that I've had for a long time. I bought it when we were on holiday somewhere in the West Country, and I distinctlly remember that my daughter was in a buggy. (She'll be 18 in March!) So, that gives you an idea of just how long I've had it! I bought several shapes at the time, and while I've used a few, others have been broken while in storage. So, it's definitely high time it got used!

I hope you can join us this week!
