Starry, Starry Card

The title of this blog post has me singing Don McLean's "Vincent" in my head:

Starry, starry night
Paint your palette blue and grey
Look out on a summer's day...

Now you've got in your head, too?  You're welcome LOL.

Anyway, onto the card.  I made this card today for the color challenge at Just Add Ink and the sketch challenge at CAS(e) This Sketch.  I haven't been able to play along at CAS(e) for weeks and I'm glad I got a chance today.

I pulled out an old, retired Stampin' Up! set (that wasn't even mounted) called Seeing Stars.  I love the graphic look of the images and used pretty much all the images in the set.  I stamped using the color challenge colors of Midnight Muse; Lucky Limeade and Crumb Cake.  The image panel is mounted onto the card base using dimensionals.  The sentiment comes from a Penny Black set.

Thanks for looking.

Products used (all Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted):

Stamps:  Seeing Stars; Wow (Penny Black)
Cardstock:  Whisper White
Ink:  Midnight Muse; Lucky Limeade; Crumb Cake

Edited to Add:  This card got an honorable mention at Just Add Ink.
