Don't Let Anything Dull Your Sparkle

Today's card is pulling double duty today as I used the sketch from the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge (FMS157) for the layout as well at the Hope You Can Cling To (Teddy Bear for My Sister) Challenge (HYCCT1406) going over at Splitcoaststampers. Splitcoaststampers has paired up with the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center for a month long card drive benefiting those affected by breast cancer.

I colored up the image from The Cat's Pajamas Catch My Drift set with Copic Markers and then fussy cut out. I prepared the background by using Dots CutUps to emboss the dots rather than cut them. I combined patterned papers from the Doodlebug Kraft in Color pad for the image panel, stamping the sentiment from the Rise and Shine set on a card stock strip. I cut the cloud using the Cloud Border and the stars from the 3x3 Stars CutUps and then covered them with Ranger Frosted Lace and Yellow Stickles.
