What a Star!!

Morning All,

Today is my Birthday, which is why I am not at work and able to post an entry at a reasonable time today!!!

Below is the lovely sketch by Marlene for the Sugar Bowl Challenge which I had great fun making a card for. The theme is Something Old, Something New.

The Something Old is of course the Gorjuss Girl which I have had for some time now. The Something New are the Pink Petticoat papers - "Vintage Rose" which I recently purchased. Aren't they gorgeous?

I cut two stars on my Cricut and have edged all the papers in Distress inks. The message is a Whiff of Joy stamp and for a final touch, I have added Star Dust stickles. The image is coloured with Coloursoft pencils, blended with Sansodor.

For the insert, I cut fourteen smaller stars which have been distressed around the edges and stickled. These were stuck onto the polka dot paper used for part of the larger star on the front of the card.

I have also entered this into Challenge #44 over at Totally Gorjuss - all they want is to see a star on the card. Got plenty of those!!!

Hope you like it.
Thanks for looking!
xx Denise xx
