Freshly Made Sketches 343

Hello people!  We've got a new challenge debuting at Freshly Made Sketches!  Yay!  This week our sketch is designed by the superbly talented Jen Timko.  That big ol' wide open layer has so many possibilities.

There's a fun "girl power" challenge going on at Addicted to CAS so it gave me an excuse to ink up my favorite super girl and this sketch was perfect to make sure she really stands out!  I gave her a white starry background with a stencil and some embossing paste then heat embossed the sentiment.

I was feeling a bit of the #girlpower this weekend because I managed to install a new faucet in my bathroom.  I needed a bit of help from my brother-in-law to drill a hole in the basin but the rest of the job was all me.  After my BIL drilled the hole he said "who's your plumber?"  I said in my most emphatic voice "I am!" 

Thanks for stopping by!  And I hope you can join us at Freshly Made Sketches with your take on our sketch.  We'd love to see you in the gallery!

Your super girl is, indeed, super and the stenciled background adds so much interest without detracting from her! Fabulous card!
