STAR CRAZY


Hey what a sunny day today and fingers-tightly-crossed we could be in for some of the yellow stuff over the weekend too! Not sure whether I've just tempted fate now!!!! Anyway I've had a boring but productive laundry day and my washing machine has taken some stick so in between turning it all around I've made this card.

I'm cutting it very fine to enter the Sketch Saturday Challenge as Mr Dazzle isn't in from work yet and I daren't faff with his photography equipment as it's too complicated so I'm typing up the post and hoping he'll arrive in time to take a quick piccy!




I've used the colours from this week's ColourQ Challenge so off over there too. Ooooh just typing up my card recipe and the word 'dies' got me thinking ... I'm off to Simon Says Stamp too where it's a 'Die-Crazy' week.

Some cards seem to take forever and this one is one of them even though I've known all week what I wanted to do with it.

Card Recipe:

Stars: Various dies from Memory Box and Sizzix Framelits, with the biggest die cut 4 times to add dimension to the card then inlaid with the smaller ones. I've coloured the edges with Promarkers to cover up any white bits on the stars too.
Other Dies: MFT Die-namics Pierced Rectangle Stax
DP: Doodlebug
Sentiment: Clearly Besotted - Geometric I heat embossed with gold embossing powder
Metallic cord from my stash
The stars are loaded with Clear Wink of Stella with Glossy Accents on top. Sorry couldn't resist making them pop with dazzle!

Ok hubby is back so just going to sort the photo.
