You Mean the World to Me

Still having fun playing with inks, mists and markers!  

I colored the star die cut circle with Tim Holtz ranger inks and spritz pearl shimmer mist over it (the picture doesn't show it very well).  I used Lawn Fawn's Year Four (hippo/birdies) and sentiment (Wish You Were Here).  The stars were spritz with red shimmer mist, too.  The birdies are holding "sparklers" I made with wire and cut sparkly cardstock using the top of a party hat punch.

CAS cards are really a challenge for me and I feel like this card "needs" something else, but I held myself back :)


Thanks to these challenges for the inspiration:

 Lawnscaping - Use stars and/or stripes
