Good Sunday Morning!

Hope all my fellow Americans had a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving holiday weekend!

The festivities don't have to end yet either.  

It's time for another challenge at

This week's sponsor is 

Thanks for sponsoring us!

Here is our inspirational photo

This week is a Theme ---
Moon & Stars

We want to see you include a moon and stars or one or the other on your projects!

Don't forget to stop by the Cupcake challenge blog and check out the rest of the design team's fabulous starry projects!  Leave them some blog luvin'!

Here is my card --
STAMPS: "Bright" sentiment - Sparkle & Shine Set (Papertrey Ink).
PAPER: Heavy white cardstock (Bazzil). Gold vellum; Shiny silver cardstock.
INK: Broken China Distress Ink (Tim Holtz); Paris Dusk  and Nautical Blue (Memento); Gold Metallic (Staz On).
EXTRAS: Mini stencil frame (Heidi Swapp); Star stencil (Heidi Swapp); Shine word die (Papertrey Ink).

We were able to use whatever stamps we wanted with this challenge.  I had just received my new Christmas stamping supplies on Friday and so guess what I used? Yep, some of the new things (word die).  But, the stencil frame I've had for a while and haven't used until now.  I decided to do sponging/stenciling to make a nice painted sky with stenciled gold stars.  I love the way it turned out!  I cut the word die out in heavy white cardstock and gold vellum so it would pop up more on the card, particularly on top of the silver moon.


Sweet Cupcake Blessings!
