Daring Cardmakers-Celestial

At last I have had time and been pain free for long enough to sit and make a card for the Celestial challenge over at Daring Cardmakers. This would also do for the previous weeks challenge of using something see through but I will be good and make something else for that one.
The stars and wording have been stamped onto plain white card and then inked over with colour from a Big and Juicy ink pad called Waterfall.
The translucent star hanging on the front is die cut from a chopping mat which was one of a set of four I bought from Poundland. The set has blue, pink, yellow and green in it and die cuts beautifully with Sizzix dies. I wasn't quite so successful with the Thick Cuts die I used and neither Sizzlits or Thin Cuts would go through it. Not sure about Cuttlebug dies as I don't have any yet.

Well I can't believe how chilly it's been here today after the heat of yesterday. Mind you at my age chilly is good........lol!!!
I ought to have gone out in the garden while it was cool enough to work comfortably but I thought perhaps I had better not. My back doesn't hurt so much now but didn't want to risk setting myself back.

I'm off to look at what everybody did for the Celestial challenge now as I haven't even had time to have a browse yet.

Bye for now

  2. Why is it that everybody seems to buy great stuff as Poundland, but when I go they haven't got anything like that?! Anyway, back to the plot - love the card, as always.
