Dies: Die-namics - Jumbo Fishtail Banners Stax #5
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Basic Black; Wink of Stella - Clear
I used the set Sparkle and Shine from Neat & Tangled on my card. The layout is based on this week's sketch at CAS Colours & Sketches - CASC&S#186, and the colours are from this week's Colour Q - cQc#354 challenge. I love the big icing gem on the cupcake in our challenge graphic and decided to make gems the feature of my card. I stamped the large, solid gem in blue randomly on the card, added some grey outline images and then filled in the spaces with some tiny black stars. I die cut a couple of jumbo fishtail banners - one in black and one in white. On the white banner I stamped a greeting and another gem. I layered the stamped panel on the black banner, which had been cut in half and positioned to show at the side. I finished the front by adding clear Wink of Stella to the outline gems. On the inside I cut a mat layer of black card and on the white layer I added a greeting, some stars and another gem.
