Fireworks .....

.... Hello, it's me again!  I finished checking out the new challenges earlier this morning and while I had breakfast and watched the football (darn Chelsea lost) I came up with a card:

Fireworks - Photo by Deborah Frings - Deborah's Gems

Stamps: Waltzingmouse - USA 1776; Stampin' Up! - Best of Birthdays
Inks: Versamark
Accessories:  White Lustre Card, Black Card; Neon Embossing Powders


I have to admit that I've struggled a bit with this week's CASology - CAS68 challenge where the cue word is "black", but when I saw the inspiration photo and title at Less is More - LIM144 - this card came together.  It's really quick and easy to make.  I simply stamped a couple of the wonderful firework stamps in Versamark, added the sentiment and then poured on neon embossing powders.  I love to watch the powders change as they set in the heat!

They don't have Bonfire Night over here in the State and it's an occasion I really miss.  Last year we tried to have fireworks at a small party in Bloomfield.  The police arrived and told us, in no uncertain terms, to put out the fire and stop the fireworks!  We've learnt from that experience, this year it'll be a small bonfire and some sparklers followed by food.

That's all for now - must get back into my craft room and finish tidying and cataloguing!!  See you soon.

Sounds like someone else had a great weekend too! Meeting people on Friday, card making on Saturday, more card making on Sunday! Doesn't get any better than that! These are all lovely cards you've made too, especially like this fireworks one and the cityscape Christmas card too.

Hugs
Brenda
