CAS-ual Friday Sketch Challenge

It's been a couple week's since I've had time to play along in the CAS-ual Friday challenge.  This week they have a sketch challenge.  Here is my "congratulations" card based on the sketch.

Stamps: Hero Arts Everyday Sayings
Paper: Bazzil White Textured, Night of Navy
Ink:  White Gel Pen
Accessories: Large and Small Star Punch

I'm still not sure about this card.  Yes, it's CAS, yes it follows the sketch (mostly).  My daughter loves this card, she's always so very sweet.  Still it is a very quick and easy card that you could use for a graduation or to congratulate someone so I thought I'd share it.

I punched the large star in the night of navy paper and then punched it out of the textured white cs and popped it in the opening.  The small star was just popped up on a glue dot.  I used a white gel pen to outline the stars and the border.  The sentiment was stamped with white ink and then heat embossed with white embossing powder.

How do you like my red glitter background?  I've been noticing people putting pretty paper backdrops behind their cards and I thought I'd give it a try. 

Here's the sketch in case you want to play along!!!


Thanks for stopping by and checking out my card!
