Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #72

Whew! been a very busy day with a very demanding 6 year old and I didn't know if I was going to make this deadline! While I totally support the teachers during this strike I REALLY need my kid back in school ASAP!  He is just really bored, even with my attempts to come up with fun things to do and some days (like today) he just wants/needs all my attention whereas other days I barely see him unless.

Anyways, as always this weeks sketch from Atlantic Hearts is sooo super cute and I wish I had given myself a bit longer to play but I did come up with a super cute card (in my opinion). 
Using the Chalk It Up Paper Packet and the Mini size stamps
Happy Birthday  and Shooting Star. I literally put this card together in 20 minutes, fussy cutting included!

Other products used are the new Flaxen Ink with the much loved Sorbet and Lagoon for the stamped images and I did edge the papers using Flaxen.

The cardstocks used are also in Lagoon and Sorbet. I did sand both of the base pieces using the heaviest grit on our sanding block to distress them and give them a bit of texture.  I finished off the card with a few of the new Enamel Stars, that can be coloured with the Shin-han Alcohol Markers and I did try it on the blue star in the center but I am going to have to play with the technique to learn how to get a more even coverage.  A few bitty sparkles and I called this quick Birthday card done!
