I've been watching the Summer School lessons over at My Favorite Things. The first class was on "lesson of thirds." I really enjoyed listening to the video, and found the information so interesting. I made a grid just like Kimberly had done, and have already been using it.
For this card I started out with some Lawn Fawn Beachside patterned paper...it has the sweetest little stars. Love this stuff! I cut out some banners with my MFT pierced banner dies, and placed them on the first third of the paper.
My focal point is the red glitter star which I backed on a MFT zig zag stitched circle. In the center I put a gold button cut out with MFT button dies. The tiny tag has the sentiment,"celebrate," from Lizzie Anne Tidbits. Behind the circle I adhered a MFT pierced fancy flourish
