It's a Card Sketch Challenge

It is Shell’s turn to pick the Challenge at Come and Get it Challenges this week and who does like a card sketch.

This is my interpretation of Shell’s sketch.

I immediately thought of this digi sentiment I had in my collection from Pollycraft Digital Stamps. I used a punch for the larger stars and a die cut for the smaller ones and made them out of silver glitter paper. I used a metallic silver fine Prismacolor pen to create the dotted background. I think the silver dots make it resemble stars far away in the galaxy.  I used Martha Sewarts pewter metalic ink to color the milky section of the background. 

Inside the card I added another sentiment from Pollycraft "You’re a Star". I thought it went well with  the theme of the card.

Come join us at Come and Get It Challenges this week and thank you for stopping by to see my card this week.
