Starry Starry Night One Layer Card

Happy Friday all! I don't know why but I struggled with the challenge at Less Is More this week. It is one layer card week and the theme is Starry Starry Night - have stars somewhere on your card. I tried a couple of snow scenes involving sponging and masking, I tried a couple of cards with cascading stars and sponging and I tried a couple more rustic CAS cards on kraft with white pigment ink - they all ended up in the trash. So getting down to the wire, here is what I finally came up with.

This card was very difficult to photograph. The stars were heat embossed with silver, the sentiment with black with a scattering of tiny rhinestones on a dark grey cardstock.

Stamps - Rustic Wreath (PTI), Just Be You (CTMH)
Paper - Smoky Shadow (PTI)
Ink - Versa Mark, Silver & Black EP, Glitter Pen
Other - Rhinestones
