Fusion Card Challenge {Bowties and Other Things!} Seeing Stars!

I could not run to my craft space fast enough to get on this Fusion challenge... you should expect every course on the menu from me for this particular challenge... consider yourselves forewarned! Have you seen anything cuter than those bow-ties today?

Appetizer course - a little star action:

SSS blue cardstock base and sentiment; NEW Heidi Swapp embossing folder for the postage-stamp-edged, Mama Elephant die cut white layer - phew!  Mama E's tiny-bitty bow tie die. 
 
I'll be tucking this one away for my granddaughter Lola who will be starring as a Munchkin in her elementary school's 
production of The Wizard of Oz in March!

Actually, yes, I have seen something cuter than those bow-ties...YOUR card! Not only is it show-stopping gorgeous, but I love that you created it to celebrate your granddaughter's role in the play! Talk about heart-warming! My niece was in her first ballet performance yesterday (we couldn't attend, but will when she dances in June), and her two grandmas (my mom and my sister-in-law's mom) gave her roses. The photo of her holding them: precious! She'll be five tomorrow...eeeeeee! Growing up toooo fast! Anyway...I adore your card, as will Lola!
