Wish upon a star

Hi everyone,

It's Monday and are you ready for a new Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge? This week you can go totally crazy with stars! As you might know I'm so in to the little wooden stars. I can literly use them on every project. Well, maybe I will do that...


This card I made ​​for my best friend Lein. Just after Christmas we had a crafty afternoon with some girlfriends and that's when she told us! I'm so happy for her! In my eyes she is a big star and she is always there for everyone! She truly is the best friend I could wish for!



I'm crazy about the Metallic Marbled Stain technique (I don't know the official name) and I done that on to this design paper. It gives a very nice effect which unfortunately you can't see very well in the picture. All the way in the back, I have used a piece of Tissue Wrap, so it wasn't to white and bright. With my Silhouette Cameo, I cut the two stars and the star on top I gave a nice coat of Rock Candy Crackle Paint.









To join in all you need to do is make a project that fits this weeks challenge and you can be the winner of the $50 gift voucher that our amazing sponsor Simon Says Stamp offers. This prize will go to a random entry. So go over to the Stamp and Show Challenge blog, let the DT members inspire you and join in the fun!

Thank you for stopping by! Love to see you next time!

Hugs,
Sandra
