JAI 310 sketch challenge - birthday make-up compact card

Happily the stars aligned this week for me to use our new challenge sketch at Just Add Ink as inspiration for my darling girl's 15th birthday card. This is the sketch,
and this is my card
Bold, huh! This year, Miss C has become really interested in make-up so I thought it'd be fun to make a card that had something with a make-up theme. Then I saw the sketch & immediately thought to make a make-up compact - & definitely one with attitude & bling, as many of the funky make-up brands seem to have. I think you can see the sketch even though I took some obvious liberties with extra layers for my sunbursts. Here's a little more of a straight-in look showing off the fun & so easy sunbursts using the Sunburst Sayings die & stamp bundle.
and here's the compact, inside.
The make-up palette inside is made of 3 layers of 1 inch punch circles, adhered together, & made sparkly with clear Wink of Stella. I embossed 2 sentiments from Sunburst Sayings on vellum & adhered them to the top inside & added lots of bling. I adhered another layer of vellum over the make up palettes with a birthday message from Dad - I like him to write the message so cards include a bit of both of us - but I forgot to take a pic beforehand so can't share that pic.

Back to the base compact - the layers are cut with the 2 largest Circles Collection framelit dies (sadly on the retirement list). I've used 2 designs of the Shine On Speciality dsp for the main layers & a frame of silver foil - I'm still loving the combination of kraft & embossed silver & it's really sturdy so perfect for the base pieces. The front & back is attached with a piece of card adhered between the layers.

 It was a tricky little project to photograph with the shape & shiny silver layers so here's one more go.

Well, I hope you liked my take on this week's sketch. Please pin my project if you do & leave a comment if you like more information. Then hop over to the Just Add Ink blog to see all the team's fun sketch ideas & try it yourself.
Back soon with another project
Inky wishes, Di

So cool Di! Such a wonderful use of the sketch for Miss C and I'm sure she will love it! I adore how have used the sunburst die to add lots of shine and the fabulous "cakes" of colour inside. A wonderful teen keepsake that I might just have to Case xx
