Starry Starry Night


Popping in with a quick card that I made for a couple of challenges.  The background is embossed and gold-foiled wrapping paper, which is far too nice to wrap presents in, so I used a piece for the starry sky background.  I stamped and masked the houses image across a piece of card, added a sentiment then fussy cut the top edge and layered it onto the background.

The sentiment is from STAMPlorations Holiday Artsy, and the The Bee's Knees - Houses stamp set will be available in January from STAMPlorations.

I'm entering this into CAS(E) This Sketch:


and Inkspirational where they have this fabulous photo inspiration:
