Baby Shower Invitation

My son is expecting his first child at the end of August.  This is the invitation for his baby shower.  The gender of the baby is unknown, so Aaron and I designed the card with all the appropriate colors!

Birthday: Star Quilt

Mossy Meadow is a warm green; I think I will use it a lot. 

I cut the star out first. Then, using the kites from Stampin' Up's You Send Me Soaring stamp set, I pieced together the quilt.  I used both glue and snail tape to hold the edges down. 

When I first envisioned this design, I thought the star should have the point up.  But it just didn't look right.  So I put the the star askew; I like the visual much better.

Then I ran the entire piece through the embossing folder for the quilting effect.  I sponged the edges, added some layers, and added the sentiment.
