I do love my dies

I think of all my crafting supplies (which keeps growing - picture husband shaking head) dies are top among my favorites.  I'm also a bit crazy about my craft metal sheets too - gives those dies an extra punch on a card.  Here is a card that came together very quickly with just dies, metal sheets, and a bit of ribbon.  I'm battling a cold so cards that don't require a lot of effort or thinking is my kind of card this week!  :)  

The background from ODBD Flourished Star Pattern die set is so lovely and intricate - you don't need much else.  I added an ornament in Pucker Me Pink in the center and emphasized the stars in the background by cutting some smaller stars in gold.

P.S.  I just have to include a picture of my dog who laid beside me while I was resting, trying to beat the cold.  Such a faithful and sweet dog.  (The collar was made by cutting off my youngest son's dress shirt he outgrew - even the dog wears hand me downs!)
