Day 21: Spectacular Day Card

Today I've been working hard on getting ready for the Peter Pan themed birthday party we are throwing for Ben and a dozen of the neighborhood kids tomorrow. I'll post pics of all the crafty Neverland fun tomorrow - but today's hectic pace called for a quick and easy card.
So I hopped over to ColourQ for some color inspiration. I knew I'd been hoarding saving these Ariana Chipboard glasses for something special. I splashed some Kiwi ink over the Colonial White CS base. Then I sponged on some green glitter nailpolish and added a few more darker dots with a black ink pen. I'm linking my splatter background up to the Just Us Girls Trend week challenge.  
Then I used parts of a sentiment from Have a Happy Day, but included the 'spectacular" with kraft alphabet stickers. I added some bitty sparkles to the eyeglass frames. I also hand-drew some penwork detail around the card edge, and some subtle glitter pen detail around the kraft alphabet letters. I'm wearing that green glitter polish on my nails right now  - just a little nod to Tink for the party tomorrow!
