Twinkle, twinkle Little Star - Try Stampin on Tuesday #309

...how I wonder who you are. That childhood song is echoing in my head as I write this post.  It's something my daughter used to sing when she was about 5 years old while she was swinging back  and forth on her swing.
This card was made using the sketch provided by Vicki for Try Stampin' on Tuesday #309, a site for which I am a designer.  The optional theme this week was "wish". 
Again, another song popped into my head "When you wish upon a star..."
So, like the sketch, I made a card with stars on it.


Card:
The base card is Sahara Sand layered with Very Vanilla and then Falling in Love DSP.  I chose my DSP first and the colours for the card came from there.

Art Pieces:
The trio of baby toys, was incorporated into a single stamp, not three separate ones.  The trio of toys was stamped onto a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock.  I just love the new Stampin' Up Watercolor Pencils, and I used those to colour these toys blending the colours with a Blender Pen.

Each image was then cut out and set aside while the rest of the card elements were prepared.

Three stars were die cut in Very Vanilla card stock using the smallest star of the retired Star Framelits.  The edges were sponged with Blushing Bride ink and then matted with a larger Blushing Bride glimmer star punched with the Medium Star punch.

Note:  The only adhesive that will work on glimmer paper is tombo glue!!

A dimensional was used to adhere these two stars together.
Three of these stars were made and then adhered to the left side of the card front.

Several itty bitty stars were punched from the remnants of Blushing Bride glimmer paper. I make it a habit to use every scrap of my glimmer paper and punch them with either the itty bitty star punch or heart punch. They are put them in a jar, a jar for each colour/shape, so they are readily available for use wherever.

Two of these were added to the card front between the art pieces.

Sentiment:
The sentiment, the same as the blog title, was stamped with Sahara Sand ink on Very Vanilla card stock. After sponging the edges, the sentiment was matted with  Sahara Sand using dimensionals, and then Blushing Bride glimmer paper. This was adhered to the right side of the card front.
To complete the trio of embellishments (three, or any odd number, is always the magic number to consider when using embellishments) the third star was adhered to the right top of the sentiment.

Inside:
A 3/4" piece of DSP was adhered to the Very Vanilla card stock.The sentiment was stamped with Sahara Sand ink as was the image of the trio of baby toys. 

Three Blushing Bride glimmer itty bitty stars were placed along the DSP strip.
