Shining Stars

 Good afternoon. What happened to it being Summer time -all I can say is 'nice weather for ducks!!!'
Still I guess that means more time for a crafty play :-)
So my share for today is a card I have made for my DH brother whose birthday is next month.
I took inspiration for my card today from the The Samp Fairy challenge - they have a fab sketch this week.

Here's my take on it:

I have used the adorable Lenny With Balloon and coloured him with PM's.
I added a touch of Tumbled Glass DI to the edge of the matt before layering onto co-ordinating cardstock.
 I used Labels 4 for my matt & layer and I'm so pleased they brought out Labels 4 small as I used to think the spacing between the standard Labels 4 was a touch big - now it's perfect!
  Here's what else I used:
Design Papers - Me to You - 'Especially For You'
Sentiment - Craftwork Cards
I punched the stars then triple embossed them and added small Cosmic Shimmer Aqua Sparkle Glitter
Here's a close up of the stars:

 Other challenges I would like to enter:
Make it Monday - Anything Goes
Stamp N Doodle - Masculine - no flowers
2 Sisters - For a Guy

Thanks for popping by.
Have a wonderful day.
