This is the first time I have played along with the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge.
The card is a 5.5 inch square on white cardstock. I started with pieces of scrap cream cardstock and stamp text in blue and red. On one of the blues I stamped various stars with Versamark and clear heat embossed them. On the red and blue I stamped wavy lines in Versamark and clear heat embossed them. Then using Ranger distress inks, I inked over the text and buffed off the ink from the embossed areas. I cut the paper into 2.25 inch squares to cover the face of the card. I was pretty happy with the layering effects to create the pattern paper.
Next were the stars for the circle pattern. I stamp various star patterns with Versamark on white, red, and blue cardstock embossing them with white and clear embossing powder. I also stamped star patterns in blue and red on white cardstock.
I cut a 3.5 inch circle using a spellbinder die and stamped the 4 in blue and the Happy in red, the th is just written in red ink.
During assembly of the stars around the white circle I used different thicknesses of dimensionals to create different heights of stars.
Thanks for stopping by and checking out my card.
