Sky and Bling!


For 365 Cards today the challenge is 'Imagine this - Sky' and Stamp Something's Challenge is to have a bit of sparkle. SPCC's Finally Friday is to have a little embossing of some kind evident.
A lady at my choir, where I sell my cards to boost choir funds, asked if I had a Congratulations card which was neither academic nor birth congrats. Her son had gained a promotion at work and she wanted to say well done. Sadly I didn't have one, but decided to make one for a future occasion.
The navy cardstock was embossed with Cuttlebug random dots and twinkled with Glamour Dust. The moon is made from an X Cut corner punch with the side guards removed. The stars are from a small X Cut punch. All have been blinged with Glamour Dust. Since I took the picture I have added a couple of adhesive gems either side of the sentiment, which reads Congratulations... the sky's the limit!' I may replace the pic later.
