Pink Twinkle Stars...Case Study #132

On Saturday, I finally figured out how to Skype (I know *HELLO! Skype's been around for ages!!*) for one reason only:  to see and chat with my niece and nephew, who at 3 and 1, are growing up way, way too fast! My niece and I had a most delightful conversation - if not a touch disjointed (Aunty's fault - so much to catch up on!!) - and when it was time for her to head off to 'bath and bed', oh my!  Whenever we visit, saying "See you later" - which usually means weeks later - is ever so hard; Skyping was no different!  Sighh...BUT instead of feeling 100% sad and teary (I opted for 99.9%) all weekend, I delved into making her a card, with a sentiment that comes from the song she always sings to me...

Inspiration from the card comes from Julie Ebersole's stunning card showcased as Challenge #132, at CASE Study.

Thank you, Julie, for showing me how pretty 'simple' can be.  While my card still seems to need "something" (perhaps some splatters??), I'm feeling rather okay with my little sky of pink polka-dotted stars...

 Hope 'my girl' will recognize - on the card and every day - the "love" that surrounds her, my 'Twinkle Star'...

Thanks for dropping by!  Hope you have lots of 'little stars' who bring twinkles and love to your days.

  1. I love this one, Carol! And so will your little Twinkle Star *wink*!! It's balanced SO well with the perfect mixture of white space and detail. The polka dotted patterned paper peeking out through the stars and heart adds the perfect touch of whimsey. And the yellow star with the gem jumping out from the heart is unexpected and the perfect finishing touch!
