SSS Challenge at Lily Pad Cards!

Happy Friday!

We've got another Simon Says Stamp challenge for you, at Lily Pad Cards! This time, the theme is all about Stars. How fun is that?!

I knew I wanted to use the Life of the Party Stars, background stamp from Hero Arts, so I stamped it in black and clear embossed.



I then punched three little stars from a dotted embossed, red piece of cardstock and attached them with dimensional adhesives. I adhered the panel to some fun, dotted paper from Amuse, and white embossed the Hero Arts sentiment. It's a fun and simple card that's perfect for this time of year, with all the graduations coming up.

So go and find all your crafty stars - patterned paper, punches, die-cuts, stamps, stickers, or whatever you want - as long as it has to do with stars, you're good to go! I sure hope you can join us in this fun challenge! You'll find all the details over in "The Pond," where you'll also find some fabulous cards created by the design team.

Hope everyone has a fun-filled weekend with some good crafty time! :)
