Rock Star

It's my turn to host the challenge at Freshly Made Sketches and I came up with a fairly CAS-style sketch.  



I hope you can play along.  As you can see from my own card, I took a fairly liberal approach to the sketch!



 The card base was stenciled with a Tim Holtz stencil and embossing paste, colored green.  The filmstrip is stamped directly onto the card base.  I tucked some thread behind the banner and the arranged some enamel dots, sequins and rhinestones.




The sentiment is die cut and clear embossed a couple of times before being adhered to another layer to give it some depth.


Thanks for visiting.  The rest of the design team have produced amazing cards, as always, so be sure to check them out.
