Celebrate!

It’s CASology’s 100th Challenge Anniversary, which is cause for great celebration, hence the cue word:

Week 100 - Celebrate

It’s  a FANTASTIC challenge with an awesome design team, and if you haven’t tried it yet, you MUST!

The cue word inspired thoughts of stars and sparkles and bright colours, so my ‘white’ space is bright pink this week, smattered with a constellation of sparkly stars! I went with this really simple card!

This was my first attempt with sparkly embossing powder, which was a bit of a challenge in itself – glitter, here, there and everywhere, and some of it occasionally landed on the embossed image! :-). I found it useful to brush away excess glitter with a paintbrush after heat embossing. I liked the extra sparkle it left on the stars, so I am glad I persisted.  It doesn’t convey as well on camera, but it sparkles beautifully in natural light (truly!)

I am also entering it into Waffle Flower’s June/July Challenge for my random star stamping:
