Reach for the stars

Hey, hey! How are you? We are slowly getting back to "normal". Can't believ the holidays are already over. We sure had a lot of fun and we spent much quality time together. But I guess it's time to go back to "real life" now.

I had some free time and I used it to play with some of my new goodies. First thing I inked were these adorable bunnies from The Greeting Farm; they are from the Let's go stamp set. I fell in love with this set the minute I saw it and I am soooo happy I finally got my hands on it. (Thank you, my sweet friend, for getting it for me!) 

One thing I learned while making this card is that I am terrible at ink blending and I really need to practice it. I created the cloudy background with the spun sugar distress ink and then I gold embossed the sentiment in the middle and glued some small gold star sequins around it. For the white cardstock, I stamped on some stars from the stamp set with the weathered wood distress ink and then "coloured" the stars with Stickles. Then I cut a rectangle out of it and a hole in the middle of it with another die. I fussy cut the bunnies and clouds and glued them on the card. I did the colouring with polychromos. I finished the card with some crystals. 

I'm sorry the photos are not the best and really don't do the card justice, but I hope you can see the bling and the dimension better here.

My lil one's birthday is soon coming up and she claimed this card for her birthday. I'm really glad she likes it so much.
