Another Grandson Card

Hi again, I have another Grandson card to show you today. For this one I took a snippet of white card and taped a Memory Box stencil ( Texture Shine ) over it, and then sprayed it with Memories Mists  Bright Gold mica spray. This has a really nice sparkle to it which I'm not sure shows too well in the photo, but maybe if you click on it to enlarge, it might show up. When this was dry I trimmed it down a bit and layered it onto some purple pearlised card and then onto an A6 white base card. I stamped the sentiment onto a snippet of white card using a Chocolate Baroque stamp and Memento Elderberry ink.and then die cut it with a Go Kreate label die. I cut a mat from another snippet of the purple card using the next size of die and fixed it to the card with double sided tape to keep it flat as it had to go in the post. To finish off  I stenciled some tiny stars using another Memory box die ( Star Dust ), and dew drop ink pads in red and purple.

I am entering this at Seize The Birthday - Masculine,  and as I used some snippets I am making a late entry
to Pixie's Snippets Playground  - Use Snippets.

Thank you for visiting here today and for your comments which are all really appreciated.
