Guylou & I have Mind Meld Powers!!

The new challenge at Guylou's Inimitability is Thank You + a Star. There are so many images at GI that would work perfectly for this challenge, but somehow Guylou and I used the same image and sentiment on our cards! No, I don't get to see the other DT members' card in advance, and no, she didn't copy mine as I barely got it in to her before the challenge went up... Mind meld, I tell ya!

Here's my card using Genie from Guylou's Inimitability:

I used some Divaliscious papers from Glitz and Copics to color. The font is one of the free ones available at After looking at G's card, I wish I'd used that vellum on the skirt like I was planning. Maybe I could have let it float out of the circle? For extra stars, I embossed the top paper with the Teeny Tiny Backdrops stars from Lawn Fawn.

Anyway, if you'd like to join in the fun, you have until 10 p.m. EST on Sept. 29 to link your project at Guylou's Inimitability. The prize for this challenge is a $10 gift certificate - enough for a mini stamp haul! G is giving two challenge entries for using a GI stamp for this challenge. If you don't have any, the store has freebies! Hey, I don't even have some of the stamps in the freebies section! I need to get on that... See you in the challenge!!
