CC534 Birthday Star

Welcome back!  Tonight the card I'm sharing is for this week's Color Challenge at Splitcoaststampers.  You will definitely want to join in with these beautiful colors!

Love Blackberry Bliss, Wisteria Wonder and Pool Party together!  The "dessert" this week is to add stars and that initially threw me.  I tried different backgrounds, sponging, all sorts of things but nothing worked to my satisfaction.  Then I decided to restart one more time and keep it simple using the Sweet Sunday Sketch from last week.

For the card base I used a piece of the new thick Whisper White card stock.  It is awesome, so much sturdier than the regular 80 pound card stock.  The next layer of Pool Party card stock was run through the Big Shot with the Lucky Stars embossing folder.

Some nice sparkle was added with stars cut out of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper then colored with a Wisteria Wonder Blendability Marker.  The stacked sentiment worked perfectly for this layout.  It's from Circle of Spring, one of the darling new stamp sets available in the new Stampin' Up catalogue.  I added a bit of ribbon and my card was complete.  Phew!

Be sure to use the links above to join in with the SCS Color Challenge and Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge.  Although there is a new sketch this week, Karen leaves the collection permanently open so we can play along anytime.

As always your visit and comments are so appreciated!  Have a great week!
