"Foiled" Challenge - Shine Like the Star U R !

I decided to try my hand at the challenge over at this week. The theme is "Foiled" and the challenge was to use some plain old aluminum foil from your kitchen on your card. This is what I came up with, and let me just say, it was indeed a challenge. Foil is hard to work with- It's so thin! I also had trouble getting it to photograph well.

The paper background is Karen Foster Design, and I used my Cricut to cut out the stars, tag and words. My Cricut didn't want to cut the foil (even after mounting it onto cardsotck) without tearing it, so I added the foil afterward and hand trimmed it. The eyelets are Making Memories, and the ribbon is bulk from my local craft store. I just love this ribbon. It's got an opalescent look to it, and it's not very wide. I like the delicate touch it adds. I added dimension with some dots used under the main star.

Thanks for the challenge!

You're insane! That turned out great! I can't imagine how tedious that was.

Great card, you're right about how tricky the foil is to work with, it tears so easily!
