Blimey ... This week's challenge over at Simon Says Stamp has turned into a bit of a marathon for me! To be honest ... I turned it into a marathon ... the theme of stars is a fab one and not too taxing for anybody me thinks ... apart from me!!!!
About three weeks ago I made my project ... at the eleventh hour ... I realised I had got the wrong week ... horror of horrors ... I had to make something else in a bit of a hurry for a completely different theme!

Anyways ... there I was ... in my hurry ... dumped me star project on the side and got on making summink else. Well ... where I dumped it ... kind of grew into one of those crafty dumping places ... went to get it out to photograph this week and it has STUFF stuck to it and needs rather a large amount of repair work ... so I made this card instead! Crisis averted!
Not sure you can see the beautiful sparkle from the Ranger Perfect Pearls mist that I used ... I used The Wendy Vecchi's Botanical Art Stamps and Lord Tim of Holtz Distress Inks ... you know Tim ... the man that can hop from star to star without a safety net while polishing the moon with just a spot of Black Enamel Accents and an inch long piece of Tissue Tape.
Do join us for the challenge this week ... you would be in with a chance of winning a $50 Shopping Spree to be converted into wonderful crafty stash courtesy of Simon Says Stamp.
Have a good week people!

A lovely card, love the mix of stars and butterflies.
The backgrounds are brilliant all those layers of stamps and inks!

Hope you manage to salvage/fix your other project.

But the card is fab-u-lous (said in my best Craig Revel Horwood voice, like your title)
