Wish Big!

Hello there! 

Happy Thursday! Its almost the end of the week and that means two things....the weekend (!!!) and Stuart has a week off school (!!!). I am very much looking forward to spending a bit more quality time with my hubby next week. 

But back to today, I'm off to my demo friend Vicky's house for a long overdue catch up and to play with some new things - she always has goodies I'd love and vice versa so we get together and share the fun! I haven't seen her since convention which was November so this is very overdue! 

I also have a very clean and simple card for you! 

Stamp Set: Pennant Parade, Geometrical, Banner Blast (SAB)
Ink: Bermuda Bay, Old Olive, Basic Gray
Cardstock: Whisper White, Bermuda Bay, Silver Glimmer Paper
Big Shot: Arrows TIEF
Punch: Merry Minis 
Embellishments: Essentials Hardware Clips

I saw a card similar to this on the net, it was using hearts instead of stars and ribbon instead of the embossing. I immediately had the idea for this card and logged the idea in my head but didn't "pin" where I'd seen the original idea. If that's you, thank you for your inspiration! 

The embossing is actually another selective embossing card - using the Simply Scored stylus again - to just get the single row of arrows. It looks great but was definitely more tricky doing it blind! If you're patient and careful though its a great little technique to get more versatility out of your embossing folders though! 

Totally loving how these white on white stars work to just add a really subtle element to the card while leading the eye to the small pop of colour in the banners and glimmery star!

Have you been inspired to do a very clean and simple card with just a pop or colour and dazzle today?

Thanks so much for stopping by,

Happy Stampin',
