When You Wish

When you wish upon a star....
Makes no difference who you are!

The featured stamper star on SCS today is UKJem, aka Julie.  Julie has such a beautiful style with all of her designs.  I chose to case her beautiful Almost Amethyst card

Here's the inspiration I took from her card to make my own:

Here's a close up of the paper tole I did on the Rubbernecker wild flower (#496-06) image.  This flower is actually only one bloom from the larger stamp image.  I colored it with a marker, stamped it onto white cardstock three times, cut them out, layered with thin dimensionals.  The sentiment is also by Rubbernecker called Wishing Upon a Star text (#88-05).

Other supplies I used are Beaded Circle Nestability for my card frame, Octagon Nestability for the sentiment panel, leaf punch, Stampin' Up large star punch, pink gems, dimensionals, Pretty i Pink and Regal Rose inks by Stampin' Up.

I used SU's white cardstock, sponging it lightly in Pretty in Pink and then sponging with Regal Rose on the outer edges.  I used the large star punch as a mask to sponge over my sentiment.

I hope you're having a star quality day, and I thank you for stopping by and visiting me!
