Go Boldy Challenge

What a beautiful Sunday!  A perfect day for some outside exercise...with the heat wave approaching tomorrow, I had to get some tennis time this morning.  I played with my husband and his friend.  Everyone was on their A game, so it proved to be a great tennis morning.  And according to the FitBit some good cardio time---though not as good as my normal Sunday bike ride!

I didn't think I was going to have time to come up with a card for the most current Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #196.  I really like the sketch, and had so many ideas, that I found it a bit hard to narrow it down.  But a little focus this afternoon allowed me to make and submit this card to the challenge.

Here's what I came up with...

I started off by using a bit of distressed ink for the background.  I then stamped and colored the various elements with Copic markers, cut them out and adhered them to the card stock.  I used silver embossing powder for the sentiment to match the glitter stars that I cut out.

I've been enjoying using my wave die to add some interest to the cards---and have really liked how it adds a bit of dimension and interest.  My new favorite technique!
