Papertrey Ink May 2015 Blog Hop Challenge

My card for the Papertrey Ink May 2015 Blog Hop came from a night of insomnia.  Instead of being frustrated over the lost sleep I simply got up and made my card. Using the MISTI ( which is 10% off today only) I created the repeat pattern very easily.  Then I cut the ENCLOSED: STAR and inlaid it back in.  By this time sweet sleep and peaceful rest was mine:).

When I returned to the card this morning I realized it needed more color on the star, so I cut another one, inked it in Harvest gold and glued it on top of the other.

MUCH happier with this now.
