Stars and Sparkles

Hi there ..

Well last night was Guy Fawkes night in the UK ... so lots of stars and sparkles to be seen.
Personally I think fireworks should be banned with the exception of professional displays.... The noise we have endured every evening over the last week is horrendous! They sound like bombs going off and my heart goes out to all the animals (and people) who are terrified! My huge German Shepherd was always so scared she would try to sit on my lap whenever she heard them ... It's not fun at all!

This week it's my turn to host at the City Crafter Challenge Blog 
and the challenge I have picked for you this week is to use a Star(s) and some Sparkle on your projects  (the pretty variety ... not the noisy!)
I know you will all be getting into the Christmas mode right now but your project does not have to be Christmas related ... 

Here's the inspiration photo for you


and my card


There are a lot of birthdays coming up and this card is for one of my Brothers 


I used a Sizzix die to cut these stars and used both the positive and the negatives on the card


... Glitter paper for 2 of the stars and a wavy glitter stick on covers my sparkles ...

I hope you will take a moment to check out the projects on the blog from the rest of the team - We have the lovely Lynnda Hosni with us again this week ... And our winner will be offered a Guest Designer Spot with us ...
Look forwards to seeing your creations ...

Have a lovely day 
~ Ros ~
