Paper Smooches SPARKS Oct Designer Draft & Simon Says Stamp

I have a card to share for the Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge, which is a Designer Drafts challenge this week.


This was a quick & easy card - the biggest challenge was deciding whether to use sequins or enamel dots.

The stars in the sketch inspired me to see if the polaroid die cut would fit in my star embossing folder and I was pleased to see a clean line of embossed stars across the top.

Copic markers colored in the sentiment from the Chit Chat stamp set and matching dots in a variety of sizes cascade down the card.

I tried sequins, but didn't have the right sizes & colors to be really happy with the results (still undecided whether or not to invest in more sequins).

Once again, with the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge being to use rubber or clear stamps,I am linking this card up there.
