Stellar Birthday

I'm sorry that the shop doors are still closed - we're getting very close to the ribbon cutting ceremony I promise - there are just a few technical issues beyond my control but I'm working very hard to get them all sorted as soon as possible and I hope to be open in a few days now.

In the meantime here's a card I made for the current Mama Elephant photo challenge but instead of going romantic I took my inspiration from the colours and bling and went for a star theme.

I stamped and embossed sentiments from Good Times and Say What first in silver and then with "vodka sparkle" embossing powders from WOW onto some pink cardstock.  Then I went to town with my die cutter and a couple of star shaped dies (MFT I think).   I used silver card, pink glitter and plain pink.  To get some very sparkly stars I embossed a couple of the silver ones with "bling bling" again from WOW.    Now I'm normally a CAS girl but clearly I didn't know when to stop with the stars and went for more is more this time!  I think it would be a suitable card for a tweenager though - they all love pink and bling right????

I'll be back for an update on the shop in a few days just ahead of the doors opening so keep an eye on the blog and facebook and form an orderly queue....

What a sparkly card, nice job!

Getting very excited about the shop opening; I keep checking the website multiple times a day so I won't miss it. Having this panic where everything will be out of stock by the time I stop by :D
