Cute Card Thursday ~ Fireworks

Our theme for Cute Card Thursday this week is 
Those of you who are not from the UK may not know that it is Bonfire Night on Saturday 5th November.  If you want to know a little more about it take a look here! The history behind the celebrations is fascinating!
We are sponsored this week by the Stamp Shoppe
Interpret as you will or use firework colours, we will also allow fire and candles to make it a little easier!
I always seem to see shades of purple in fireworks so I opted to use my Bo Bunny Winter Joy, seemed a shame not to when it was still on my desk from a layout!
 I opted to alter a small notebook to create a journal to send to my daughter in her care package.
The image is Belles 'n Whistles coloured with copics and prismacolor pencils.
I decided against stick out embellishments as they always seem to fall off a heavily used item like a notebook.  Simple and practical!
I added some stickles glitter to the star so I can enter the 
Totally Papercrafts challenge which asks you to 'glitter it'!
Winter Wonderland want CAS cards with little embellishments, well this is pretty CAS for me!
Hope you will play along with us this week!  For more inspiring ideas check out the amazing DT makes!
For those in the UK (and ex pats who will be celebrating abroad, like us) have a fun Bonfire Night and keep safe!

Thanks so much for dropping by!

In the days before the National Curriculum, when we could choose what would be good for our classes, I always worked with bright wax crayons and black paint, and the children loved the magical way the fireworks popped out from behind the paint.
