Word Prompt "GLOW" - Inkspirational Challenges

Hello crafty people :o)

Come and play along in our new challenge with INKspirational!

Now, it is up to you how to interpret the word. Let us see what you can come up with of awesome creations :o)
Here is my interpretation of the Word Prompt....

I am usually an early bird when it comes to my DT responsibilites but lately life has come in the way. So this card was made in the last minute. At times like this I truly appreciate being a fan of CAS :o)

I chose 3 shades of yellow to create the glow around the star. Here I used the Ink Blending tool to apply the colours.

I was in a bit of a hurry with this card, so I actually forgot to add a sentiment before I adhered the front to the card base with 3D tape. So I had to think creative and my Dymo was my knight in shiny amour, LOL. 

I wanted the sentiment to relate to stars and a Danish Christmas song. I went on Google 'cause I couldn't remember the name of the song. Every Christmas Day it is a tradition for Danish kids to watch a special Disney Christmas show in television. I did too as a kid. And there is this introduction song in the beginning of the was just perfect for this card!

In Danish the song begins with "Når du ser et stjerneskud, lad dit ønske flyve ud..."

In English it means something like this "When you see a shooting star, let your wish..." I know it's not the correct translation but I can't remember the exact words. 

We have Hannelie Bester joining us as Guest Designer and she is absolutely über cool. Do go check out her blog Desert Diva and leave her a sweet message :)
Go visit the other DT girls and leave them some crafty love too...
Go have some fun!
Pia :o) 

Supplies used: 


  1. Fabulous idea and love the idea of the sentiment plus great to learn something about your traditions at Xmas x

  2. I love the bold yellow and I think using the black dymo sentiment gives it real punch.
    I wonder if the song is 'When you wish upon a star, makes no difference who you are, your dreams come true'?

  3. Love this Pia! Thanks for the memories of the song. They played this every Sunday evening at the beginning of the Disney Show in the US in the 1960s. When you wish upon a star, makes no difference who you are...

  4. Fedt kort og er stor fan af Disneys juleshow :)

  5. Gorgeous card, Pia. I'm with Marina and Yvonne - I think the translation must be "When you wish upon a star..." xx

  6. "When you wish upon a star...' Oh, how that stirs memories! Your glowing star card is absolutely gorgeous...CAS and stunning! Hope you're doing alright, my friend!

  7. Love this bold and bright design Pia! Love that pristine white star! Fabulous! :-)

  8. This card is fantastic! Love the glow around white star. And the sentiment on black. So cool!!!
