Seeing Stars


Today I wanted to share a card with you for a couple of challenges (I know you never would have guessed)!    But before I do, lets go back to my post from Tuesday, Soda-pop, an Evolution of Terms.  Though I know there are cultural and regional differences in terms, I was mostly being silly because...well, that is what I do.  But people really chimed in with their opinions.  First thank you for actually reading my post and second for leaving your comments. :)  Anyway, Kara Lynne commented about drinking fountains versus bubblers and I want to know  more about this.  I think I have only heard of a bubbler once before, is this an East Coast term?  Are there other names for drinking fountains out there?  Educate me people!

Now to the card.  I have a card made for three challenges.  First, the 10 Minute Craft Dash- featuring Stars, second the Little Tangles Challenge for any old birthday and last CAS-ual Friday's Challenge- Material girl.  I originally used the CAS(E) this sketch #35 for the layout but knew I wouldn't make the challenge deadline- go figure! For the Craft Dash, I made my card in 7 minutes and 55 seconds.  For the Little Tangles I used my  Neat & Tangled Sunburst Stamp and for the CAS-ual Friday I used ribbon for my material (hope that counts, I wasn't sure).  Anyway, here are the photos.

 I love these colors and the DP from BasicGrey Kneehighs and Bowties.  You may have noticed I've been using that paper a lot lately!  As I said, I used the Neat & Tangled Sunburst stamp that I love and this is my first time using it.  I also used my CAS-ual Friday Exclamations set for the "Squeal" part of the sentiment.  This set adds fun for just about any card.  Finally I used my new Avery Ellie set Party Animal for the rest of the set and the stars.  I wanted to add the balloon dog too, but I thought it would take too much time for the craft dash AND it wouldn't be CAS anymore, so I didn't.  Not to fear though I will be using that balloon dog elsewhere. :)  Here is a close up.

Okey-doke folks, thanks for stopping and I hope you have a good day!

PS- I am participating in the DeNami Blog Hop on the 15th, so please be sure to stop by for that. :)

I just LOVE the sunburst stamp to create the tone on tone look! Not too busy, not overpowering but so perfect :D
