Oooh, Shiny

This is my second post today, as I'm cranking out some cards for challenges on this, the last day of my long weekend.

This card uses the stars theme from Cupcake Inspiration Challenge, as well as the black/white/glam theme at Verve October Inspiration Challenge and the sketch from Retro Sketches.


I started with a white card base, then added a smaller white panel with silver glitter paper top and bottom.  In the middle of that is a black panel, on top of which I adhered the sentiment, also cut out of the silver glitter paper.  The stars I found in the packet with the glitter paper and I think they are cut from Verve's Starry Dies.  These are popped up on foam tape.

A pretty simple but shiny and glittery card - the only way I like glitter - firmly adhered to card :)


Thanks for visiting.




Products used:

Stamps:  Good Times (PTI)
Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black
Cardstock:  White, black, silver glitter paper
Dies:  Good Times (PTI), Starry dies (Verve)

Cheers
Karren

Edited to Add:  This card got a shout out at Cupcake Inspirations and Retro Sketches.
