SSS126 - You're my Hero

Happy Saturday!  It's sure starting to feel like fall around here! Sportin' some jeans and cozy sweatshirt as we head out to the kids' soccer games this morning!  Saturday not only means it is time for soccer games, but also time for this week's Sweet Spot Sketch Challenge!  It's the 3rd Saturday of the month which means there is a sketch with a spin and prize is up for grabs!  The spin is "Starstruck!"  You can interpret that any way you'd like!  
Here's my card:

When I saw this newest MFT a la mode stamp set called "Blue Without You," I thought it was perfect for this challenge!  I colored up the image with copics and cut her out.  I adhered her to a oval kraft panel using foam dots after distressing and inking the edges of the panel and adding some faux stitching with a white gel pen to mimic the stitching in the PTI enchanted evening saddle stitch ribbon.   That DSP is digi paper from the Doodle Panrty "Stars and Stripes" paper pack.  I matted the DSP with PTI enchanted evening CS and distressed the edges.  I blinged up the star with some glitter glue.

Here is the sketch which I flipped vertically:

Now come and play along with us.  You can use any stamps you'd like.  Don't forget the "starstruck" spin to be eligible to win the prize!  Hop on by my fellow Sugar Babies' blogs for some added inspiration!
