I tried for a simpler card and... failed. It ended up extra fussy. lol.
I created the blue background by stamping the dot image from Mixed Media CMS125 (Stamper's Anonymous) in Broken China Distress Paint. Once dry I sprayed with London Blue and Calypso Teal Dylusions Ink Sprays. I misted with water and blotted the excess ink/water with a paper towel. For a final touch I spritzed with White Linen and then dried the background with a heat tool. After matting on black cardstock I stitched the edges with my sewing machine.
For the main image, smile-y star, and sentiment I used the Critters Ever After set from Lawn Fawn. I also used the Bannerific stamp set to create the banner - paper piecing it with some designer paper (Swagger by Fancy Pants). I diecut a few pieces using Pinking Circle Nestabilities (Spellbinders) and a tab for the sentiment (MFT).
Added some ribbon, pearls, and a bit of Glossy Accents to finish the card.
Hope you enjoy it! - Danielle
