Let Your Light Shine + DPP Blog hop

Hi everyone! Doodles Paper Playground is celebrating their new release with a blog hop and I am super excited to be a part of it. Here is my card using the Sparkle Blend - Majestic :)

I used one of my all time favorite kits for this one, last year's My Monthly Hero August kit. To start, I die cut the cloud/stars window frame out of a panel of white cardstock. Then I blended distress inks over the front of a top folding A2 card to be the background. For the little girl, I used a scrap piece of cardstock and stamped/embossed her with silver ep and die cut her out. I also stamped and embossed the sentiment at the bottom of the panel. To put it all together, I taped clear acetate to the back of the panel and covered the edges of the back with foam tape. The sparkle blend went on the top of the card in a little pile and then I lined the top panel up at one end and pressed it down. I added the die cut of the little girl to the top and a few sequins at the bottom to finish it off.

Stamps: Hero Arts - MMH Aug 17
