Weekend Sketch Challenge

For Beate's weekend sketch challenge I decided to pull out a great Gina K set, Make A Wish. I love the Gina K sets, I really need to get some more. You know how it is need it all! Like I say I need to win lotto! :-)LOLOL.

For this sketch I used the chalkboard technique. Once I completed that technique I embossed the image using clear embossing powder. On the small shooting star I think the "blurriness" looks cool. That occurred because I did the embossing right over the chalked image causing that shadow or blur. In person this looks rather neat. I added a nice ribbon to the big image and then used stampin dimensionals for the small image so it pops out. It's rather simple but I think it turned out nice. I decided to send a few cards in for the Gina K Design Team call. It doesn't hurt to try. It's really nice because Gina has a permanent DT but also has a rotating one so every 3 months she has another call. It gives many chances for people to try out for a team. How cool would that be to get on Gina's team? I know there is sooo much awesome talent out there but hey you never know. Ok, yes I know that is the slogan for the NY lotto! HA HA HA. No I'm not a gambler but will play lotto once in awhile. :-)
