Love You to the Moon and Back

Hi everyone,

It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. This week Sabrina our challenge hostess for February continues to bring us fun challenges.

Interesting, because February is a short month, there can actually be years in which there is no full moon at all. The last time this happened was in 1999, the next time will be 2018. So while this isn't one of those years for our challenge this week we are to feature the moon on our cards.

I have had this cute little girl sitting on her bed looking out the window for a few months now and this seemed like the perfect opportunity to ink it up :).  The window is blank so you can put whatever you like there, but the set also includes the tiny moon and stars so I decided to add them to create a night sky.

It has been a while since I have created a combo accordion card so the Star and Circle Accordion Card die sets designed by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs were calling to me to use them in a combo Accordion Card.

The sentiment on the star panel didn't quite fit, so with a little bit of cutting of my clear stamp I was able to get the whole sentiment to fit into the star.

Here is is what my card looks like when it is closed ready to be placed into an envelope.
