A tangled sunset

Good morning,it's another cold one! Not really liking all this white stuff everywhere, but out voted  by granddaughters! They had a day off school yesterday...and are hoping for a repeat today...another day of sledding, snowball fights and snowman building! At least the kids enjoy it!
The new challenge starting today over at Fab N Funky has the fun theme of 'Mandalas and patterns' our lovely sponsor this time is Digistamps4Joy, with fab prize for our lucky winner.
I used this gorgeous background digi, Tangled sunset. I had several ideas of how to use this but in the end opted for the easiest! I coloured it with copics in 'sunset' colours, then used a black sparkle gel pen to colour the dots and stars etc. Using a die I cut out the circle, then mounted the image over the gold glitter card using foam to raise it slightly. I then adhered it to the black glitter  card. I die cut the sentiment twice, once in black glitter card and once in plain black card to strengthen it. It was so relaxing to colour this, I really enjoyed it.
My teamies have made some beautiful cards this week, so please hop over here and take a peek (...Oooh poetry too!!!:) then we'd love to have you play along with us.
Thanks for visiting.

The colours are fabulous and I am not really sure why but the images and the colours remind me of the 70's, before your time I know.
My boys were sent home at lunch time today and were thrilled to bits and I think they are off tomorrow too, I know Ethan's Parents Evening has been cancelled for tomorrow night as I was due to baby sit as John is away.
Don't tell Austin I said baby sit as he is 9 now and I have been told in no uncertain terms from him that I should say 'Boy sitting"
