Wow. Thanks. Unbelievable. Just Add Ink Color Challenge

These are the colours of the Just Add Ink Color Challenge:  Melon Mambo, Taken with Teal, and Elegant Eggplant.

Why the title?

Today this blog site achieved a milestone  - One I did not believe - ever- would actually happen.

When I started this blog just over a year ago, I did not put in a stat counter so I had no idea how many visitors were coming to my blog.  In February of this year I did.  Since that time, I have received an unbelievable number of  visitors.  Would you believe 20,000??????!!!!!
I remember saying to my friends when I put the counter in, if I even received 100 visitors it would be amazing.

What do I say now, except "Wow" "Thanks" "Unbelievable"!!

I used the colours of the Just Add Ink to make this fun pop-up accordian card.
When the card is opened, you see Stars, stars, stars!. That's how I feel - like a star.
The stars were made using the Star die and the big shot, then stamped with the Elements of Style stamp.   Heat and stick powder and glitter was then applied.  For an event like this glitter and lots of it is needed.

I used Kraft card stock as my neutral.
Other materials used in making this card:
.new edge punch
.basic black ink
The sentiment was stamped using a retired stamp set: "Thanks for Everything".

This is a close up of the sentiment.
I mean every stamped letter!!!

Thanks to everyone for your marvelous support, and your positive comments.  I feel I have really grown as an artist because of this.

How do I celebrate 30,000?
