Happy Saturday everyone! I have a new TAWS card to share today using Phone Home and Blast Off from our April release.

I wanted to make a one layer card, so I inlaid all the die-cuts into one layer. First, I took a piece of Coconut Swirl cardstock and cut out the main stitched panel using the large stitched rectangular die from Blueprints 13.  I took the window die from Blueprints 20, taped it to the centre of my main, white panel and cut it out, so it left a rectangular hole ready to inlay my die-cuts.  I then ran the same die through my Cuttlebug a second time using Blackberry Swirl cardstock to create the black window.  I used the plain, stitched square die from the same die set to cut out 6 squares from coloured card.  I stamped the coloured squares with various ailen stamps from Blast Off and Phone Home, then I inlaid the black window die-cut and coloured squares into the rectangular hole so that everything was flat.  To finish, I stamped a sentiment from Phone Home and added 2 silver star sequins.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
- Scrap & Craft Inspiration #6: Frame it
- Addicted to Stamps #139: Clean & Simple
- Everybody Art Challenge #319: Sequins
- Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: A is for (my "A" is for ALIENS, tee hee!)
