Howdy, gals! I fully intended to post this card last night, BUT we had a few minor "issues" around our house. So, here I am tonight.

I started with a base card of SU Gold Metallic cardstock. The light teal color you see is SU "retired" Cool Carribean. The stars are stamped with Versamark and embossed with Clear EP. Then I took 3 colors of Brilliant Dew Drop ink pads, metallic gold, pearlescent Platinum and Sky Blue. I used the platinum color first and using circular motions went over most of the card front. Then I dabbed a bit of gold metallic here and there to make it blotchy looking. I took a paper towel and rubbed all over the card front, doing this removed all ink from the clear embossed stars. The last step, I took the Sky Blue pad and starting in the middle of the star, I rubbed blue ink just to make a shadow around the stars. Taking a clean paper towel, I took the blue ink from the clear embossed stars. The tag with the saying on it is from the new nesties set "Fancy Tags 2. I just received Tags 3 in the mail yesterday and they all are beautiful! Final touch was the use of Hot Fix jewels in silver on the stars and gold stars on the tag. Til tomorrow....

WOW you have left me speechless and I think those nesties are now necessary.
