Wednesday Words

My dad's birthday today, so we're off out for lunch at one of his favourite places - they do a good basic pensioner's meal at a great price and he just prefers it to all the more fancier menus in other places.

My card today is the main cause of all the sparkle on my craft desk and phone.  Less is More wanted sparkle and that's what I got!  I used the layout from Sketch Saturday as it lent itself really well to a CAS card.

I started with a piece of navy pearlescent card, so slightly sparkly. The stars were cut from sparkle card on my cuttlebug and I offset the little ones at either end as I knew I'd never get them lined up - my cheats way to make it work, anything to make things easier  I say.  I used thin double sided tape to adhere the glitter lines and then was stuck for the sentiment. Many experiments failed with stamping and embossing on dark card - how do you get stamping to show up on dark card? So I reverted back to my very beginnings with card making and shock, horror, used a peel off!


Die: Xcut
Sparkle: Sparkle card & Glamour Dust

I'm delighted to have been picked as worthy of a mention at these two challenges: Casology & Craft Dash. This still gives me a flip of excitement.  Big big thank yous!!
