Shoot for the Moon!

Hello Monday!  That's a very chipper hello too!  In Canada it's a Statutory Holiday and I get another whole day of card making and getting inky. 

Mabel is reaching for the stars on todays Stamping Bella card.  I'm still amazed that I was able to do a card without a pile of ribbon, bows, brads & bling... but I just wanted to keep it simple.  Simple & Sweet.

Here's the inside with the sentiment that comes with Mabel:


I've added glitter to the stars by colouring in with the glue pen and then dotted around the stars with the pen to add a little scattered glitter.  If you like the look of the sky & moon around Mabel, it was very easy and was done using my circle Spellbinders as stencils and 2 big daubers.

Aww, how sweet. I love doing backgrounds and had not thought of using dies. I usually use punched circles. Lol! Enjoy your inky holiday, Carla.
