Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #17

It's time for another sketch challenge over at the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge blog!  Here is the sketch we would like you to play along with:

Here is my interpretation of the sketch:

I wanted to do something different this time around so I chose this card shape and distressed it with Color Box Chianti ink and also inked the sentiment with the same colour.  The large stars were punched using a Martha Stewart punch and the small stars were punched with a Fiskars punch.  The sentiment is from Penny Black.  All the papers I used were from my stash.  I love glitter and couldn't resist using the red as I think it matches the gold and silver so nicely.  This card literally took less then 10 minutes to make.  All the stars are popped up with foam dots.  This card can be used for quite a few occasions which makes it very versatile.  I haven't finished the inside as yet as I do not know who the recipient of this card will be.

I hope you'll play along with us at Atlantic Hearts and if your card is chosen you might just be displaying a top 3 badge on your blog!
Thanks for stopping by!

Isn't fun to shake things up and do your own thing?? That's what it is all about. Love your card shape and how those stars just pop off the paper. Great job !!
