CAS-ual Fridays #84: Thank You

It's CAS-ual Fridays time! 

This week we have CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #84: Thank You!

If you're like me, it's perfect timing since I'm writing holiday thank you notes anyway! *wink*

I needed thank you cards for some of my students who brought me Christmas gifts, so I came up with this card using the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps set Big Thanks. I wanted it to look sort of schoolish and sort of holidayish, so I used the October Afternoon Merry & Bright paper for my star and some school Washi tape, both from Paper Issues at Etsy. I tried to use the cool star technique that Kelly showed from Amber, but as usual, I got lazy and just popped it on with some foam dots! 

Are you ready to play along?! This week you could win a guest designer spot at CAS-ual Fridays AND a $25 gift certificate from Ellen Hutson's fabulous online store!

Can't wait to see what you create!
Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs and happy stamping!

Stamps: CAS-ual Fridays Big Thanks.
Cardstock: SU Whisper White, October Afternoon Merry & Bright paper.
Ink: Memento Black.
Accessories: It's Elementary My Dear Washi Chalkboard Tape, SU Star punch.

absolutely love your card and that star is fabulous! Did you create the dimension to it or does the punch come that way?

Yay, I saw your card earlier, but finally have time to comment ... so excited you tried the barn star!!! LOVE it in the red, dotted paper! A super fun card, and I love that the sentiment is semi-hidden.
