…a trail of glitter is never forgotten

Sharing a CAS card featuring the lovely Party Season Girl 3 from All Dressed Up and a fabby sentiment stamp from Close To My Heart called Leave a Little Sparkle.

The girl from All Dressed Up comes in a set with two other girls, all ready for a night out.  This one looks like the friend this is going out to so I had to use her.  This card was a real quick one, CASer and quicker than I intended but I only sat down to make it at midnight thanks to my coffee machine exploding all over my kitchen earlier today.  Thank goodness for challenges to help you take all the stress out of planning out the card!

The layout for my card follows Cécile’s sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.  For the horizontal background elements I decided to go for a radiating pattern using a Tim Holtz stencil.  It left the perfect space for my sentiment stamp too ~ crafty serendipity you’ve gotta love in the wee hours of the morning!

The challenge over at International Art & Soul is to add some sparkle.  That made me pull out my fav shimmery gold pen from Nuvo to trace through the stencil to match my sentiment.  The sentiment stamp is new and was gifted to me by the consultant I made a purchase through, Barbara Hopkins, who was every so sweet in fixing up my order and also sending me this lovely stamp as a gift.  It also happened to be lying on my craft desk and was clearly meant to go on this card.

As I’ve used a lovely All Dressed Up image I’m also linking my card up in their current challenge.  The theme is always anything goes with one of their images so nice and easy to enter.
