For the "string it up" challenge I chose some silver thread to string my sequin stars along the top of this card. The bg was made with oil pastels that I scribbled on watercolor paper and then rubbed with gel baby oil. I added spots of iridescent ep to make the sky sparkle. Hope everyone is enjoying their long weekend!

Love the wonderful colours of this gorgeous card. The pastel technique sounds really interesting and I must look into it. If I can get the same great results you did it will become my new favourite! LOL

Everything about your card is FANTASTIC, Polly. The sentiment is wonderful and I love your folk art-like angel. Terrific bg...TFS how you did it and the silver thread strung with sequin stars is the finishing accent.
