You Shine

 I made this card for my little granddaughter who will be traveling to participate in a gymnastics competition. She has competed in several local events, but this is her first big trip to an out of state meet. She's so excited!  I wanted to encourage her since I can't be there.  

I used the Starburst embossing folder on a soft shimmer champagne paper and cut it down to a smaller panel before mounting on a gold dotted acetate panel.  The sentiment was cut with a SSS die of the same name from the champagne card, gold and teal matt card from Simon Says Stamp. I finished by adhering tiny fold stars and a single gold heart.

                          This second photo shows the shine a bit better. Tough to capture in a photo.

I'm linking to Can You Handle the Pressure - I did use the embossing folder, though not with the dots option.
