You're Brilliant!

 I had a chance to play along with this week's Fusion Card Challenge who joined with CAS this Sketch this week.  I decided to use both the inspiration picture and the sketch.  

When I looked at the inspiration picture, I really liked the cut out look on the candle.  I also saw in the top left corner what appears to be a wrapped star.  I decided to focus on those two elements for the CAS Sketch.     I used some new gold foil card stock that I die cut with MFT Modern Morracco Cover Up.  I used  TomBow Mono Aqua Liquid glue  to adhered the die cut to a piece of rustic white card stock.  I then die cut a piece of vellum to using MFT Fishtail Flag Stax.  I used MFT Watt's Up?  stamp set and gold embossed the sentiment using Watermark / Resist Ink Pad & re-inker from Ranger. 

Next, I die cut a star with some rustic white card stock and used Watermark / Resist Ink Pad & re-inker from Ranger again to distress ink the star with a direct to paper technique.  I then gold embossed the areas.  I wanted to make sure it was not perfect and some white areas were exposed.  I then use some memory thread in gold metallic to wrap around my star.  I added some foam circles to pop the star up a bit.  I finished the card with a gold metallic memory thread bow.  

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
