CASology #24 and RetroSketches #42

Popping in quickly to share two cards.  The first one is for this week's CASology #24, where the key word is 'Star'.  I immediately thought to pull out Star Prints, which is kind of new to me.  I also added a few stars from the Tag it's set.  I die cut part of the star from the front panel, and replaced it with the red star in the negative space.  The front panel is raised, but the red star is not.

CASology #24

Next up is a card for RetroSketches #42.  Here is the sketch.

I found this sketch to be trickier than I originally thought.  I tried a number of things before settling on this card.  Still not quite sure if I like the card, but I know I love that cute mitten paper.
