Lawnscaping Challenge #104 - Sketch

Hi Lawnscaping Fans!
We are entering into a new challenge over at Lawnscaping, and we are testing your skills by working with a sketch.  I will tell you right up front.  I felt like I've never been good at sketches, but it is a good challenge, and really push my creativity.  Annnndd, we have an awesome sponsor - the one and only Lawn Fawn!! The winner of this challenge will get a $25 dollar gift certificate and a fun badge to display on their blog!!  WHOO HOO!

My card, I kept it pretty simple - I took the star from the sketch and ran with it....I wanted a star themed card to go with the sketch.  I used papers from the BeachSide 6x6 paper pad from Lawn Fawn, and I picked three colors with the star background.  LOVE this paper!  I also used my Stitched Rectangles dies to create the rectangle shapes on my card base.  I used a star background stamp also on my Fog card base, and stamped the background to create a tone on tone effect.  I used the stamp set Lucky Stars for my sentiment, and I heat embossed it in some Pewter embossing powder.  Love this stuff too!  SO pretty.

And, check out that sparkle on that star.  I took one of the wood veneer stars from Lawn Fawn and altered it by embossing it with some black sparkle embossing powder.  When it is embossed, it doesn't look black at all, but it gives such beautiful sparkle!!  I am glad my camera captured it!!

I hope you are able to play along with us!! Thanks for stopping by!!
