Less is more - not a square

This week at less is more the challenge is Not a Square

So being IT literate, I've been trying to make templates using Corel Draw (because although I have a newer copy of photshop, I couldn't make photoshop do what I wanted with vector graphics and shapes).  Anyway to cut a long story short, earlier in the week, I'd been playing with rounded squares.  But what I'd really wanted to try was a star.  I tried a 5 pointed star, and it didn't sit very well, so the next step was a 6 pointed star!

After a lot of scrap sheets of paper then card, and lots of cutting out...then some stamping and clear embossing followed by some sponging (2 blues and a beige), and done!

The words are inkadinkado, my daughter's head teacher uses them for motivational speaches - to encourage the kids to take opportunities and to take that leap of faith and try, and if you do, you will find that you can fly like an eagle.  In today's corporate speak we are encouraged to be 'fearless'!

This picture is to demonstrate that it works as a card, but may be I should stick to the day job (or use a better camera).
