Aqua Stars

I was burning the midnight oil after getting off work last night and created this card for two challenges.  First off, I have to give Amy Kolling the credit for inspiring me after seeing her gorgeous card on Pinterest!  I used a solid CS instead of DP and stamped stars instead of snowflakes, but the layout is the same.  This is a sneak peek of a new set being released by Our Daily Bread Designs on Nov. 1. There are 4 different sized stars and I've used all but the largest size to create the background.  Today's Ways to Use It challenge on SCS is to use our favorites and for me, it's the color and the use of embossing - both dry embossing for texture and heat embossing for the shimmer and shine!  It's also for Susie's HYCCT challenge to create your own background.

STAMPS: His Birth (ODBD)
PAPER: Coastal Cabana, White
INK: Coastal Cabana, Versamark
ACCESSORIES: Tag die by WPlus9, ODBD Sparkling Stars dies, Snowflake EF by SU, Silver cording.
