Hand made by you - at Try It On Tuesday...

….that means no shop bought embellishments or digs! 
We would love to see what you can create all by yourself! It's not as hard as you might think, as you will see if you take a look at the fabulous examples created by the Design Team
I have made a birthday card
 I used two stamps from Indigoblu's Light and Sound borders and added some lighter stripes using the edge of a faux credit card 
I used a star punch to cut out several stars... 
 ….which I stuck together - using an eye makeup applicator...
….used another to add some red ink 
I then added some little punched stars
and added a Happy Birthday banner made by cutting a triangle out at each end.

We look forward to seeing what you create. Don't forget to show the link to Try It On Tuesday in your post!

Thanks for looking, Chris

This latest challenge is really right up my alley. I love the idea of recycled and reused. Of course, you know me. I've never done a digi in my life, so that is no problem.

I really love how you punched the stars and used the faux credit card for lines. This was a wonderful card.

This is terrific, and something quite different with the paper-text stars. I like the way you have made the textured red lines too. Hand-made cards like this one are an all too rare treat to receive.
