Hot Pink Lucky Stars


So I'm here with a card I created for two different challenges. The first is Less is More. I love their challenges because it's always different but always the same. It really pushes you to come up with something new. This week it's one layer cards with stripes.

The next challenge is The Play Date Cafe's splash of color challenge. This time around it is hot pink. What fun!! Normally I don't post my card so soon in the week because I like to play around with the color scheme. Unfortunately this means I almost always miss the deadline :( So in order to actually play along I'm posting early.

here is the combination of the two challenges

Super fun no?!

I know that stars are traditionally hot pink but I felt like the color combo gave it a kind of rocker chick edge :)

I stamped the sentiment first to get my placement then stamped the stars around it. All the stamps are from Hero Arts Year Round Sentiments set. I just colored the images with two different hot pink markers (one is a hair darker than the other). Of course I had to have some shine on those stars so I added glossy accents to the black and stardust stickles to the solid pink ones.

I have no idea why I am so hooked on the graphic look lately but I can't seem to get enough of it!!

Thanks for visiting :)
