I had such fun with this weeks challenge, I luv using stars, almost as much as I luv using hearts...teeehehehe. I wanted to stay true to the "Seeing Stars" challenge and use them as much as possible. I have used the paper from Studio Calico's Brighten Pier 6x6 pad. I also used the sweet tiny wooden stars from Studio Calico. I spritz them with Black Soot Distress Tim Holtz stain....luv how they turned out. A super simple card to create but, it has lots of impact....follow your dreams and......sparkle & shine!

Mojo Monday/MOJO371-Be Blessed



This is my take on today's Mojo Monday sketch, I am also up on the Verve Blog taking this month's Vellum Diva Dare. I am vellum challenged, so much so I do not own any...lol. As much as I luv it, I find it very hard to use; so I used a piece of printed acetate the closest thing to vellum I have. I also find acetate hard to use, but I went with it to take this month's dare! I have used today's Mojo Monday sketch, I hope you will join us; this weeks sketch is awesome! I have used the sentiment from the Verve set Be Blessed. Hope you have a great Monday...sparkle & shine!
