...be to God! I came out of another Latin test alive! If I can get through this semester of Latin, I will have completed my language requirements - then no more stressing over Latin! Yes!

Anyways, on to the cards...
I wasn't sure how I was gonna use THIS new set from PTI, but it turned out pretty fun, using the PTI Make It Monday #153 challenge as inspiration. I also used a pearl, and some pearlescent glimmer mist for the watercolor, for the Simon Says Stamp challenge. Also, using the CAS(E) this Sketch #66 challenge...

So without further ado...

After I finished this card, I realized I had some pretty star sequins I wanted to try out, so I went ahead and and made another...

I wanted to make this background blue so, combined with the stars and sentiment, I would have a nice baby boy card. Then I realized the flower in the image would kinda screw that, so I went ahead with pink.

Those little stars are so darn cute - I can't wait to use them on another card. :)

Thanks for stopping in and God bless!
