Thank You, You're a Star Challenge!

Morning ladies!!!  It's challenge time again at Guylou's Inimitability!! 

This week, the OTT talented Guylou herself is challenging us to make a Thank You card with a twist. The card must have a star on it. The star can be an embellishment, a stamp or a digistamp or on the paper you use. 

For today's card, I decided to go a little country on ya'll and use the Apple Basket and Sunflowers image from Guylou's store!!! 

This image has been a long-time fave of mine and I was super excited to ink it up with my Copics.  Since a star is our challenge twist, I wanted them to really pop on the card.  I cut two sets of stars for each single star and put some foam squares in between the two stars to give added dimension!  

We have a big prize this week. Guylou is offering a $10.00 gift certificate from her online storeYou can enter only one project, but if you use a Guylou's Inimitability digistamp, your project will count for two entries. If you don't have one of her digistamps and your budget is tight; please check her online store where several freebies are available.
You will have until September 29th, 10:00 pm to play along with us and with a prize like that, what are you waiting for?!  Can't wait to see what you cook up!
