Paper Players Sketch Challenge569

 Talk about "under the wire"  - Today I decided to do a card for the Paper Players sketch challenge and it was one thing after another and I'm super late getting my card up and posted.

Hope you aren't tired of this color combo as the last 2 cards I've posted have been done using it.


For this card  used the sentiment from: Star Studded Season.

Card Base: Basic Black, Second layer blue card stock from paper studio, designer paper from paper studio, brushed silver cs *retired su, Whisper White. Edited to add that the star is white cs with silver glitter in it.

Swiss Embossing Folder, Star Dies, Memento Tuxedo black ink and a blue gem.  Foam mounting tape.

If you have any questions about how the card was made just email me and I'd be happy to answer them.

  2. Beautiful, Ida! The starry paper is so pretty. I love how the paper, center stars and sentiment all work together. Thank you for sharing with The Paper Players!

  3. I love the double layer of the star and how it sparkles! The sentiment is a perfect fit as is the patterned paper. Very cool Christmas card! Thanks for sharing at The Paper Players!

  4. So pretty, Ida! That celestial background is the perfect detail, too. Thanks so much for having fun with my sketch this week over at The Paper Players!
