spatter... as in the basement wall

DD celebrates her bday this weekend with a sleepover.  Ten girls.  In her mind, at her age there's no greater way to celebrate!  I'm all for it.

And it gave me cause to spatter the basement wall.  Good thing it was only watercolors!

Yep, this is my entry for the Card Creation Spatter challenge over at the Moxie Fab World.  Love the idea and opted to combine the spatters with a skyline.  Like fireworks.  Had to include the touch of Checker Cab too!  And a few lighted windows in the skyscrapers.  Wonder how long it will be before DD will prefer a shopping trip in NYC to a sleepover.....

Used the colors from The Play Date Cafe challenge #133, cuz hey, fireworks and red, white and blue.  No brainer.  And DD is half American :)

Here's a close-up to share the sparkly light blue, case you missed it.

Thanks for visiting.  Have a great one.

Supplies celebrate!:
Paper: cardbase Buttinette, CS American Crafts
Stamps: Artemio, sentiment Inkadinkado
Ink:black Versafine, blue Versacolor
Tools: paintbrush, square punch EKS
Other: watercolors, colored pencils, bling

What a fabulous idea and a great firework show!! Love the nod to the New York cabs too :0)
Won't be long before shopping takes over from sleepovers...... Less hassle but more money!!!
