Inspiration Friday - Inspired by Stars

Stars are a perennial favorite when designing cards, and as we swing into a patriotic weekend in the old US of A, we're feeling festive and... well, awfully stellar!

I searched the web for a variety of images featuring stars, and here is a look at a few of my favorite finds:

I'm feeling starry-eyed at all of these fun star-studded things! That garland is all kinds of oooohhh and aaahhhhh!

My Favorite Things has lots of great products to give your projects that extra special sparkle. Let's take a look at some awesome projects that will inspire you to create with stars!

Star products from the Laina Lamb Design Count the Stars line take center stage in Inge's card. Her monochromatic design is simply stellar!

Julie created a dreamy sky on this blue-hued design. The silver sparkle really allows the stars to shine through with the help of the Stars in the Sky - Vertical Die-namics!
