Soft Hello Stars

A few days got away from me, but I'm back with more card ideas.  There are a few challenges that I wanted to make sure to play along with, so to help catch up, I combined two challenges.  I made this card for a sketch challenge from Freshly Made Sketches and a photo inspiration challenge from Stampin' Royalty.  I chose the soft colors from the photo, so I decided to use Soft Sky and Crumb Cake to mimic those colors.  I also added the star elements because of the photo.  For the sketch, I wanted to think outside of the "box" a little, so instead of using an image or text box, my text (the hello from the hello you framelits) fills the space of the box.  I textured the white card stock with the Lucky Stars embossing folder (I just love those embossing folders).  I stamped stars from the Pictogram Punches stamp set on the Crumb Cake card stock and then added an additional Crumb Cake and Soft Sky star next to my text.  To tie everything together (literally), I used some soft Crumb Cake seam binding and then adhered everything to my Soft Sky card base.
