New challenge over at Sarah Hurley 365.

And this time the theme has been chosen by the lovely Claire N, and it is All Embellishments Just One Shape. What a great theme, I of course had to pick stars for mine.

I used some gorgeous navy blue starry paper from one of Sarah's  A Few of My Favourite Things kit as my background. I made a postcard using the Christmas Mail Stamps, I am really loving this set and use the postcard quite a lot as it is so versatile. I masked the bottom left hand side of it and stamped the gorgeous Wish Upon a Star set, and coloured her in with Promarkers and Flexmarkers to match the papers. 

The sentiment comes from Star Stamps, and I heat embossed it using silver embossing powder. To add a few stars to it, I scattered some silver sequin stars on the backing paper and one on the front of Twinkles dress. I distressed the edges of the postcard using some Memento ink.

I popped some pleated ribbon on and put the postcard onto some 3mm 3D foam to give the card some dimension.

Promarkers and Flexmarkers
Memento, Versa Mark and Archival Ink.
Foam Pads and Collall.
Ribbon and silver sequins from stash.
