Reach for the Stars



Happy Tuesday everyone :) I have another card today using an adorable fairy image from the Faerie Song Art Stamps Collection available at Susana's Custom Art and Card Design. This particular image is called Kyra. I inked her up with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and stamped her onto PTI white cardstock. I colored her in with copics and, of course, added Stickles :) I then sponged around the image using Versamagic Aegean Blue ink. I added stars, which I found at Michael's, and Silver Geo Shaped Sparklers.

Next, I created my card base, which measures 5x7, out of SU's Night of Navy cardstock. I layered So Saffron on top of that followed by Rose Red, followed by my design paper from DCWV's Once Upon a Time stack. I used SU's ticket corner punch on the corners and added Martha Stewart pearls. I also added a blue ribbon from M's dollar bin. Finally, I mounted my image onto the card base using dimensionals. I stamped my sentiment, which says Reach for the Stars on the inside of the card.

I also wanted to thank my wonderful blogging friend Marsha. She gave me another award for my blog (see a few posts below for the award). I again pass this on to all my blogging friends and readers, you all rock! :) Thank you so much Marsha for this award. Be sure to check out Marsha's blog, she is incredibly talented.

Well, that's it from me today. I'd love to hear what you think of my card. Thanks so much for stopping by. More tomorrow.
Hugs, Christine :)
