You're a Star!

The latest challenge over at PlayPaper Challenge blog is just that... plus they are having a DT call....

I needed a Birthday card quickly so took up the challenge.   A very CAS card..... some PP with stars, a sentiment with some stars and it was done

You're a Star


The sentiment is from Rosie's Studio and it was the first time I'd use it.  I simply couldn't get a good impression till I remembered seeing a tip on Kristina Werner's blog.... lightly sand the stamp.  I found an emery board and did just that.... and YES it did make a difference!  I added a bit of Copic colour and mounted my sentiment on a Nellie Snellen die cut.  a touch of gold Kindyglitz and my quick card was finished.

Don't forget the O' Christmas Tree blog hop post below  (or here) - Lots of Christmas tree goodness to view through the blog hop.

My parents arrive late tonight, so please forgive me if I don't get much posted or commented on over the next few weeks.... or at least till after Christmas.  I'll have some time to play between Christmas and New Years as I on holiday from work till the 7th Jan.  So need the break and the weather is starting to warm up at last.

Thanks for visiting today.

Hi Dawn, your card looks amazing. Thanks for sharing the tip about the emery board. I will have to give this ago with a couple of my stamps. Say hello to your parents for me & enjoy the time you have together.

The shimmering gold paired with the black is ultra chic. Very festive and happy wishes.
