Congratulations Karen – please head over the the Simon Says Stamp Blog for all the details of how to claim your prize.

So back to this week’s challenge.  I’ve got a gold-tastic card to share with you this week – it’s so shimmery in real life.  For the large stars I used the Simon Says Stamp Mosaic Stars stencil from the STAMPtember release.  It’s the first chance I’ve had to play with this stencil so when I saw the challenge theme was “Seeing Stars” I went straight for it!  I used a gold glitter effect texture paste with the stencil and then accented the card with some little cork stars from Studio Calico.  I actually spritzed them first with Heidi Swapp gold lame colour shine spray and then coated them with Glossy Accents.  To finish I added some gold thread and a gorgeous sentiment from Clearly Besotted’s Most Wonderful stamp set stamped in gold Delicata ink.


I hope you get a chance to play along this week – can’t wait to see your creations!
