Sunday Stamps! #124

It's time for another new challenge at Sunday Stamps! This week we have a sketch for you to play along with.

This is a great sketch with many fabulous possibilities.  I thought I would work with the "Going Places" product suite found on pages 38-39 of the Occasions catalog.  I have made quite a few masculine cards using the World Traveler Embossing Folder (138289) as well as the earth image in the Going Global stamp set (140748), so I wanted to focus on the other cute sayings in this stamp set.  I ended up making an anniversary card for my husband with a matching gift box (perfect size for a gift card). 

I thought the black sky with stars paper from the Going Places DSP (140581) stack would go well with this sentiment.  

The matching box is 3.5" by 3.5" and 1" deep.  I used a my retired heart punch to punch out the "lucky stars" sentiment.
