Purple Stars

Welcome back for a Merry Monday card!  Today's challenge comes to us from Bonnie and her challenge is to use stars on our cards.


My card didn't end up as it started and I had a few false starts with it, but finally got something I was reasonably happy with.


I decided to go with a purple card base for my card and silver embossed the greeting in the bottom left corner.  I then die cut the stars using the Stars Parade die and silver glitter paper.  I stuck that on a slight angle onto a black panel which had been cut with a curvy edge die.  A tiny strip of silver glitter paper at the top and a few sequins and rhinestones and my card was done!


Thanks for visiting.  The design team have some beautiful star cards so be sure to check them out.

Products used:

Stamps:  Rubber Stampede
Ink:  Versamark
Cardstock:  Elegant Eggplant (SU), black, silver glitter
Accessories:  sequins, rhinestones, Stars Parade die (SSS), silver EP, Curved Die (Spellbinders)

Cheers
Karren

The curvy panels look so good, especially with purple and those stars just shimmer with those two background layers!
