Papertrey Ink April Blog Hop!

 
Hey there!  Today is PTI blog hop day and the challenge this month was to create a project that "tilted".  I had to ink up my new sets, Star Gazer and Star Gazer Additions.  I also got a little help from the Mama Elephant Cosmic Stars stamp set.  These sets compliment eachother perfectly ;)
 
I made a card and matching tag for my Mom's birthday in June :)
 
First, I sponged a piece of white cardstock with different colors of distress ink, then adhered that on a slight tilt to the card front.  The focal point is made using the medium and large Seeing Stars dies.  Using the cloud dies, I cut clouds from the BEAUTIFUL white shimmer cardstock.  LOVE!

For the matching tag, I used Mat Stack 3.
