This week's sketch at Freshly Made Sketches was the inspiration I needed to create this card - I used the sketch for the inside:-
Here's the sketch (which I have rotated 90 degrees):-

So now you can probably guess why it's special. :) DS is not one for a lot of fuss, so I've gone with clean lines & subtle interest by way of self coloured stamping, embossed lines on the black stripes, white shimmer panels, a miniature scallop edge on the black circles, iridescent ice embossing on the stars, crystal effects on the 21 & the internal pop-up!
Here are some close-ups of the inside:-
Hope it passes muster!
