Stars in their multitudes

Hello Crafters,

Melbourne has turned on a gorgeous sunny day today, so I will quickly share a card I have made for the Just Add Ink Colour Challenge before heading outside to enjoy the sunshine with my girls!

The challenge this week is a Colour Challenge JAI#235.

I love this colour combination and needed to make a card for my daughter’s friends birthday next weekend, and these colours screamed cupcake to me!

I started with a card base of Pink Pirouette. I then got out the Stars decorative mask and using my sponge daubers and the above colours, I began sponging from lightest to darkest randomly around some Whisper White card stock. This almost gives the effect of Bokeh!

I used the Cupcake Builder punch with the 2014-2016 In Colours Backgrounds DSP, then Strawberry Slush card for the cherry and sprinkles.

I added some chevron ribbon before adding the embellishment with dimensionals.

I added the sentiment from the Sassy Salutations Stamp Set in Blackberry Bliss.

I think this is a very sweet little card and I am loving the stars background. I know I will definitely be creating more of these!

This background is very cheap and easy to create, why don’t you give it a go too.

Please leave a comment below, what you think of my card.

PS I was the winner at JAI for this card!!!
