This week I needed a birthday card for my friend Lola, one of the 7 Cardologists. My starting point was a piece of background that I had left over from that card (the second one in the post). Lola had admired those golden splatters and so I assumed she liked the panel...?
Stamps: Simon Says Stamp (Happy)
Dies: PTI (birthday, gold star)
Other: Studio Calico (little, wooden stars), Heidi Swapp (white star with script), Gelatos
It took me way too long to decide which way to go with this card until these challenges came to my rescue:
Freshly Made Sketches #182
Virginia's View Challenge #9 "Metallic"
Simon Says Wednesday Challenge "Stars"
In the end I really love how it came out! I feel it's so me! The stars, the artsy panel (in my dreams I am very artsy, you know...), the grey card,...
ETA: Carol pointed out that I should link up to Addicted to Stamps (Anything goes) and to Inkspirational (Shine). Thanks Carol!
Wishing you a fantastic weekend and thanking you for your visit and comments,
