Confirmation card

It's that time of a year. I needed to make a card for our neighbour and decided to use Whiff Of Joy challenge #28 - stars and stripes.

Stripes were not a problem but I could not for life of me find any stars I actually liked. Eventually I dug out an old sheet of fabric covered paper with golden stars. It was harsh buttery white and didn't really go with my card at all, but couple of colours of Glimmer Mists later it worked as a treat! :)

This card didn't really photograph well, MME stripy paper has stong textured stripes of pressed glitter and SEI cream paper is subtly pearlescent, boys shoes and Bible were accented with clear glaze and wings with Cristal Stickles - in life this card looks really nice, luxurious and touchable.

I used Sketch Saturday last weeks sketch, was too late to enter the challenge but loved the sketch anyway.

Card recipe:

Papers: MME, SEI and my stash
Stamps: WOJ & Magnolia
Colouring Medium: Prismacolour pencils with Sansador, Glimmer mists (Cinnamon, Chocolate & Midnight Blue), Sakura Stardust & Glaze pencils
Stickles Crystal Ice
Spellbinders & Sizzix dies
Fiskars border punch
Lace & ribbon from stash
Flower stickers from Papermania

Thanks for looking!

Excellent card, very boyish and yet elegant enough for confirmation. Have that stamp but only inked the girl one so far.

Hi am just blog hopping and found your site, what fantastic card this is. It can be so frustrating when pictures do not give your work justice, glitter, glimmer & Shimmer just do not photograph well do they? but it is a great card am betting it looks $1,000,000 in the flesh.
