March 3rd Fusion - Lucky Days

It's time for another Fusion Challenge -  and we've got a St. Patrick's Day inspiration photo and a wonderful sketch.
  I went with the sketch and star design this time since I don't need any St. Patrick's Day cards this year.
I used a star stencil from MFT with WV Archival inks in Violet, Pink Peony and Tea Rose to get the birthday party feel!  Then I masked the star area and sponged the top with the same Violet Ink.  I added a piece of twill ribbon to separate the two areas. I added a few white sequins and stamped some stars from Star Gazer Additions in black as well as the sentiment from Birthday Cheer.
At the last minute I decided to brush over the die cut sentiment and some of the stars with a white glitter Wink of Stella - you can see the shine on it better in this photo.
So show us what inspires you with this weeks Fusion Challenge!   Link your cards up here.
You will find all of the Design Teams cards there too - they are also linked below.
