Hi!  I'm at the start of a week off work (yay!) and hoping I can spend some considerable time in my craft room.  So today, I made a card using the sketch at MFT Stamps.  I was inspired by MFT's own packaging because earlier today I'd been putting away some new stamps and the black and white stripe with the pink really made me want to create 😄 Apologies for the glare in the photos - I took them with my phone rather than my camera and the colors are so in-your-face!

Anyways, I cut a strip of Black & White patterned paper off-centre on a white card base, then added two slivers of gold foil cardstock.  The "stars" word is stacked three high and covered with clear sparkle pen.  The sentiment was embossed with Melon Mambo EP onto a black strip and added with foam tape.

To finish the card, I added some stars which were also covered with clear sparkle pen.

Thanks for visiting.

I'm also linking this up to the bold letters challenge at Just Us Girls and the word challenge at Time Out.

Ink:  Versamark

Wow Karren - this card's colour may well be in our face but it looks spectacular with the off centre black stripes, touches of gold and the perfectly big bright bold sparkly sentiment and stars. So glad you shared it with US at Just Us Girls this week. Thank you.

What a terrific card, Karren! I love so much the hot pink elements over the black and white striped paper. The hint of gold makes the perfect classy detail to finish it off.
