The stars are die cut from a thick Tim Holtz die. The background I used embossing paste and Tim Holtz Bubble stencil, sprinkled sparkle embossing powder, let it dry and then heat embossed it. It doesn't really look sparkly, so I will certainly skip this next time. I have Avery Elle Custom Panels Dies that I used to make this curved edge. I had to snip it a bit, wasn't quite long enough. The blue edging is a metallic CS that I've had forever. The sentiment is Lawn Fawn. Sequins are Pretty Pink Posh. I know everyone had their own way to attach sequins, but I had one that I haven't seen mentioned. I use Ice Pearl Pen. That way it has a little white peaking out of the center of the sequin, which I actually love.
I am taking a break from participating in challenges for a while. Sometimes I get all caught up in the design or colors that I am losing the joy of cardmaking. So, I am CASEing cards and gathering inspiration instead.
Tomorrow I have the honor to walk in the Relay for Life that my friends are doing. It's a 24 hour event, where we all take turns walking for an hour, even in the middle of the night because cancer never sleeps. I feel extremely fortunate that my family has not had anyone that has passed from cancer. But I have lost many, many patients to cancer. This is for them. They have all touched my life to help make me the hospice nurse I am today.
Thanks for stopping by! Traci

I am having trouble finding my way around my stamping area. Just lost my mojo. Thought I would CASE other's works til I find my way again.
This card inspiration I got from Techniques by Trish. I love the rainbow design she used. I am trying to make as many masculine cards as possible, so thought I would change the colors to fit my need.
I would like an opinion about the sequins. I like the look of the sequins, but does it take away the masculine look?
Thamks for stopping by! Traci
