Simon Says Wednesday Challenge - Seeing Stars !

Before I tell you all about this week's challenge, I have pleasure in announcing the winner from my blog of Stephanie's Birthday Blog Hop.

So, the lucky person is.....

KT Fit Kitty

Many congratulations.  Please make your way to the Simon Says Stamp Blog where there is an explanation of how you claim your prize !!

Thank you so much to everyone who joined in with our Thinking of You Challenge !

It's Wednesday and 

Yes, we have a new challenge over at Simon Says Wednesday Challenge !

The theme this week is 

Seeing Stars !

The Design Team are this week showcasing Studio Calico Products.

For this week's challenge, as always, Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store!

My card is really glitzy in real life, would you believe ?  It was so hard to capture it on this dark and dismal day :(

Anyway, I inked the background with the distress inks and then took the stars and dots stencil and inked it in white ink.  I love this look, the stars and dots are so subtle but show up when they catch the light.

The cork stars I sprayed with Mr Huey's gold spray so they are glitzy too !

The shooting star is heat embossed in Glitz gold embossing powder and that is definitely glitzy !!

You can see a list of everything I used below !

We hope you can join us in our challenge this week and we look forward to seeing what you make !

Thank you for your visit and I hope you have a great day !
