Eat Cake meets Unity, with a side of Authentique

I’ve got a pretty special card for you today…and ohhhh what a struggle! I think I love to share the ones most that are the hardest ones to complete; maybe because the whole world watches me blast through stump Sandy cards week after week, so when it comes the hard way, I’ve got a lot more pride in it! (By the way I entered it in the new Oozak Challenge Blog – go check it out!)

This little image is one I especially wanted for a mom or dad with two kids and a dog …. they’re going to love writing in cards with this image! I knew I wanted Mia, Teddy, Sweet Pea and James looking up at stars….I imagine families looking at the sky night after night, thinking about each other. :( The sentiment is by Unity….and it might only be the 2nd time this has seen ink. The words are pretty mushed together – the second “twinkle” is barely readable to my persnickety eyes! So I stamped it again, ised a white pen to add a little space around the sentiment, then fussycut the word. It still was a little funky, but once popped, it reads much better.

I wish I had written down the colors I used for you! I really do need to get better at that. But they are pretty basic :) Papers are by Authentique, and I added gold and silver stars to the sky with pearl pen.

The grass made this card really work for me! I layered the two strips of paper, but beforehand, I used my Martha Stewart fringe scissors on them. The second piece of grass is popped so it all feels like a pretty dimensional scene.

So….there you are for a Saturday inspiration card. I hope you have a great weekend ahead!!!
