...Kristina's Color Inspiration #37, Ways To Use It Challenge #200

Edited to add a better photo of the card...I have sunlight to work with now! LOL!
This is my submission for a couple of challenges from earlier this week: Kristina Werner's Color Inspiration #37, and the Ways To Use It Challenge #200 from Thursday at SCS. For the WT we were to use stars in our design, and they took center stage in mine! These stars were taken from three different Verve Visual sets: "Polka Stars", "Swirly Stars", and "Seeing Stars". I used the following colors to create the star layers on Whisper White Cardstock: Chocolate Chip Classic Ink, Old Olive Classic Ink, Pumpkin Pie Classic Ink, and Baja Breeze Classic Ink. I stamped several stars directly onto the focal panel, then stamped extras on a scrap piece of white cardstock. I cut those out and layered them atop the ones already stamped on the panel using Dimensionals {or pieces of them depending on the size of the star}.

I used Chocolate Chip Cardstock to mat the focal panel, the row of Silver Brads along the top of the panel, the sentiment panel, and the Jumbo Pewter Eyelet. The focal panel was also pierced using a Mat Pack and Paper Piercer. The sentiment was from the Stampin' Up! set "Absolutely Fabulous", and it was stamped in Old Olive Craft Ink before being embossed with Clear Embossing Powder and a Heat Gun. Light Blue Kaiser Rhinestones were added to the centers of the five stars that stand up from the base, and along the bottom of the sentiment panel. A piece of 5/8" Chocolate Chip Grosgrain Ribbon was added through the eyelet, and tied off using Silver Cording to complete the card.

That's it for today! I will spending the day stamping with Pam Varnell again, so I should have quite a bit to share for the next week or so. I will be working on several blog challenges that were posted this week, and I will be working on a sample for the upcoming sketch challenge for Tuesday here. Thanks so much for stopping by, and I will see you all again tomorrow! Until then...
