Seeing Stars

I went a little outside my usual comfort zone, both with the colours and my layout.  This week's MFP's Speedy Fox and Friends Challenge is to use at least 4 layers and to stagger them.  At one point on this card I have 7.  Not a record but not bad...

I decided to case the latest Mojo Monday sketch as my inspiration for this week.  I had to study it carefully for my inspiration but decided I wanted to go with the star theme.  I used my star stamp from MFP's Calendar set to make the background in Apricot Appeal,  Marina Mist and Pacific Point. The sentiment is from MFP's Great Flowers set.  The ribbon is also Apricot Appeal.  I then used both my star Nesties and my punch from Creative Memories.  The star embellishments are recycled from DS's Hundred Day poster.  He was so proud to be able to take in 100 rhinestones that year.  We did it as a Christmas tree and each bauble had 10 rhinestones.  I have too many supplies (Head hung in shame.)
