CAS Colours and Sketches 162

This card is for this week's challenge at another of my favourites, CAS Colours and Sketches. I love this sweet little sketch, which opened up a lot of possibilities.

For a deceptively simple card, there's a lot going on. In order to get the two-coloured sentiment, I masked because I couldn't get a good enough imprint using markers to colour the photopolymer stamp. The red glasses are layered to give depth but the first layer is inlaid. The white lenses have been covered with Wink of Stella to give some glimmer but it really doesn't show in the photo. I made the different sized tiny stars using the Confetti Stars border punch - and that fine-tipped glue pen that I got from the Occasions Catalogue came in really handy!

Update: Delighted that this card was a Weekly Winner at CAS Colours and Sketches.
