Lavinia Challenge #10 - Anything Goes

I have sad news today. The Flutter By Wednesday challenge is now closed. Life happens, and it was decided to close the doors. Even though I was only on the design team for a short time, I really enjoyed it. There were some super talented ladies on the team with me.
This is a card I had designed for a FBW challenge and I wanted to still post it as a farewell. I decided to go outside my comfort zone and try a new technique. I used some Tim Holtz distressing ink and created the night sky and mountains. The moon was simply a masked circle die cut before applying the ink. I think I need a little more practice at distressing, but overall I like how it turned out.

sketch - inspired from Sandy's card
stamps - Lavinia Stamps by Tracey Dutton, Sweet n Sassy, and My Favorite Things stamps
star die cuts - Lawn Fawn and Martha Stewart
embossing folder - Lifestyle Crafts
ribbon - May Arts
Pearl pen - Viva Decor
ink - Tim Holtz and Versafine

I'm entering this card in the Lavinia Stamps challenge, Anything Goes. I seriously love these silhouette fairy stamps.

Thanks for visiting my blog today!
