CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge #80

My second post for the day and already my fingers and brain are tired from all the 'linking'. There is probably an easier way to do it but I haven't worked it out yet!!
Another brilliant sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch. They have such wonderful ideas each week and they are all different. How do they do it?!

I purchased some die-cut journal cards a few weeks ago and have been dying to try them out, so thought this would be the perfect chance.
I was trying to make this journal card into a shaker but I must have been over-flowing with static electricity yesterday because I just couldn't get the sequins to stick on to anything else but my fingers! So put my acetate away and used some as embellishments. I stamped the hearts in a light pink until they got to the middle of the photo frame. I covered the middle heart in Wink of Stella and lots of Glossy Accents to make it the star.

The journal card is from We R Memory Keepers. The heart stamp from Lawn Fawn 'Woodgrain Backgrounds' and the sequins from Studio Calico at Papervine.

I'm also linking this card to the challenge at Moxie Fab where their theme is 'Use a Journal Card' with your card design.

And will also link this to the challenge at Just Add Ink where they had this colour combo for inspiration and you had to use '3 colours' on your card. I chose dark pink, light pink and yellow.

My fingers are beginning to feel icy cold which means the rain isn't far away. Will rush out now and walk my doggies and then post my other two cards. I like to get the posts done before the kids come home from school as I lose my train of thought and ability to link to everything with 'Can I have a sandwich?', 'Where is my book?', 'I'm thirsty' in the background.

Take care
