Shine!


Amber has provided a wonderful sketch with a twist this week in the Verve Forum over at Splitcoaststampers. This is the Viva La Verve September sketch Week #5. The twist: use specialty paper.

For my card, I used Cork paper by Karen Foster. It even had sticky adhesive on the back! Talk about convenient!! I also used one of Verve fabulous new sets called Star Struck!! The stars are unique and fun, and the sentiments are wonderfully varied!! Check this set out HERE.

I added a hint of sparkle with a clear Spica pen to the dots on the large star, and the star above the *i* in Shine. Sorry it doesn't show well.

Thanks for dropping by!!
Happy Stamping!
