Clean & Simple Sketch FTL112 Challenge

Here's my submission for the Clean & Simple Sketch FTL 112 Challenge this week.
Merry & Bright
Here's the sketch:
FTL112 CleanandSimple

I really enjoy creating cards for the Clean & Simple Challenges. When I saw this sketch I knew exactly what I wanted to do. After getting started, I had a very frustrating time! I thought I had some star punches, turns out I didn't. So, I thought, not a big deal, I'll just make the stars with my Making Memories Slice Design Cutter. What a fiasco! That turned into a hour long unproductive mess of nothing. Finally, I gave up and just drew my stars freehand.

I then emailed the company because I have had nothing but bad luck with this machine. Their response was not a favorable one, I'm afraid. In hindsight, I wish when my had husband asked me which machine I wanted, either a Cricket or Slice, I had chose the Cricket. Thankfully I haven't spent alot buying cartridges for the Slice, because I really don't see myself using it much it at all. Having worked with these machines, I know all too well the problems they have and how many times the company had to be contacted. I hadn't used mine too much at that time and now I wish I would have, because I would have returned it. If you have one and you haven't had any issues, good for you! I'm not sure how many people can say that.

Of course, just a little too late, I discovered I have a Sizzix die for stars. You can always count on the old reliable Sizzix dies!

I'll be dropping this card off at The Baker's Wife for display.
