darkest nights...

Hello!!  Things have been a little crazy in my house, but I did find sometime the other day to make a card for a couple of challenges:  Freshly Made Sketches and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge - seeing stars.  I recently got some new goodies from A Jillian Vance Design and one of the items was the new Darkest Night stamp set.  I paired it up with the really fun AJVD Scattered Stars Strip die and the small star from the Stitched Dot Stars die set.  I die cut some black cardstock using the Scattered Stars Strip die and then die cut the piece with a square Spellbinders die.  Silver sparkle cardstock was die cut with the same Spellbinders die and then adhered behind the black square.  The sentiment was then stamped in VersaMark and heat embossed with white embossing powder.  Originally I was going to just adhere the square to the white cardstock base, but decided the add the light gray cardstock panel for a little extra punch.  I adhered the square and then added the little silver star to finish things off.

Have a wonderful day!!

Supplies:  Cardstock: PTI white, black, SU! gray, MFT silver glitter cardstock; Stamps:  A Jillian Vance Design; Dies:  A Jillian Vance Design, Spellbinders; Ink:  VersaMark watermark ink; Embossing powder: Hero Arts

Wowzer--this is just perfect, Rosemary! I have a very old stamp with a similar sentiment--you've inspired me to get it out!
