friday favorites - bright & beautiful

It's Friday Favorites at the Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration blog and I have a favorite to share today! It comes from the 2014 Holiday Catalog. The set I chose to showcase is called Bright & Beautiful. This stamp set coordinates with the Star Framelits, which are a new addition to this year's Annual Catalog. Aren't those stars beautiful?

This particular card I made for our SSINK Holiday Catalog swap, so each of the gals in our group received one of these cards. Unfortunately pictures don't always do cards justice, especially when you add glimmer and glitz. The middle star is die cut out of Silver Glimmer Paper. The stars stamped in the background are embossed with Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder. They sparkle in person! I thought it would be fun to double up on the ribbon. The 1/8" Silver Taffeta Ribbon is laid over the 3/8" Lost Lagoon Stitched Ribbon. Gives it a fun touch...although the knot of the ribbon does require extra postage. Well, so do the pearls! ;)
