This is for BevMom's HYCCT challenge, Shine it Out - to use lots of sparkle. I took Bev's quote literally - "stars can't shine without darkness" - and die-cut stars from glitter card with Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps dies, then added a lot of gems. Glitter card is a life saver since I promised the family I would avoid glitter for a while - I don't know why, but they didn't like it in their sandwiches and on their soccer/football uniforms!! The sentiment is stamped on a Nestie rectangle sponged with gray ink.

They don't like glitter in their sandwiches or on their football kit - what is wrong with those men ;-). Do you not find that even just cutting the glitter card still manages to produce a small amount of loose glitter? Whatever about that lovely bling (love the extra sprinkles as well as the flourish) that sponged panel is still keeping your own style in there.
