Hi everyone.

Quick post before I have to fetch my son from chess class.
The card I've made is for the current sketch challenge over at the CAS(E) This Sketch Blog.
This is my card:

and the sketch:

For my card I've stamped the star from My Mind's Eye (Item #LL1005) with black staz-on on white cardstock.  I heat-embossed the star with silver embossing powder on black cardstock and cut it out.  I heat-embossed it again with silver embossing powder on white cardstock and cut out the middle part.  I adhered the cut-out white star to the black one and adhered that overlapping the staz-on star.
Computer generated the sentiment, layered on black cardstock and adhered with foam tape overlapping the stars.  Added some silver rhinestones and adhered my panel with foam tape onto my card front.  Quick and easy and I must say I like how it turned out!
Have to be off!! 
Thanks for popping in (...and I love your comments!!)
