Casual Friday with Snippets

It has been ages that I played in the CASual Friday challenge - time to get back into it! I made this card "on commission" and there were very specific requirements about the colors and the scripture in front. It was kind of difficult...I thought the colors are Halloweenish and the scripture text does not really match. So I took a deep breath and approached it like I would any challenge and I actually really like the result of it.
 
 
 
I used a Sizzix Embossing Folder. The stars are cut from glitter paper with Simon Says dies. I printed the scripture text on my printer and went around the sides with blue ink to make it stand out better. Some silver thread to bring it all together.

As you can see below I made a whole bunch of them - but the one for the challenge has only
8 stars....
 
 
 
 I am also entering those cards into the Simon Says Wednesday challenge - Anything goes
and the Snippets playground - use a snippet

I love the stars Cornelia! The cards turned out great given the odd requests -- I could totally see this as a non-Christmas card -- maybe a You did it! type card.
