SC184 - BIG Stella

This card is for today's sketch challenge #184 over at Splitcoast Stampers. When I first saw this sketch I was intrigued and thought that it looked like fun. Then I started making my card with my Stella image and cut her out along with the smaller squares and laid it all out and realized I needed a BIG card if I was going to fit all of these diamonds together. This card measures 5"x7" and now the only problem is finding an envelope that will work for this. Stella was colored using my Copics and I added dazzling diamonds to the star on her wand and outlined her crown and some of her dress using the Spica glitter pen. I cut and embossed all four squares using my Nestabilitie dies and popped dotted only the large Stella diamond. I'm not sure that I'm all that crazy about how this card came out, there's a whole lot going on and I think its a tad to busy!

Supplies: Daisy with a Stella on top, Have a Magical day - Stamping Bella, Me & My Big Ideas designer paper, Nesties, Copics, Ribbon, Gems, Eyelets, Spica glitter pen, Dazzling Diamonds, Flowers from my friend Bonnie, Rhinestone brads, Pop dots. Colors: Chocolate Chip, Pumpkin Pie, Summer Sun, Whisper White.

What a great card, Lynn! I love all the diamonds and think I will have to case this card!
Do you have a Michael's near you? If so, you should be able to find 5x7 envelopes there. Another idea would be a stationary store...
Thanks for sharing!
