OLCCC Challenge #10 Reminder

Hello!  Just wanted to remind you that there's still time to join in on the current challenge over at One Layer Christmas Card Challenge.  It's always anything goes with an optional twist. The twist this time is stars.  And if you use the twist you are entered in for the prize draw!  Here's a little bit of inspiration to entice you to play....

I decided to use just a single star again and used a lovely tree stencil (ARTplorations) I hadn't used yet.  I also decided to make a square card for a change.  I made the tree off center and off the edge and secured it down. Then I sponged Mowed Lawn creating an ombré effect.  Next, leaving the stencil in place, I inked up a flourish stamp (Inkadinkado) with the same colour and stamped it overtop.  I used canary yellow and cantaloupe Memento ink for the star.  I removed the stencil and glued on some red sequins (Neat and Tangled).  I stamped the sentiment (Hero Arts) in black.  It's CAS but quite nice I think.

I hope you'll take some time and join in on the challenge.  Thanks for visiting and have a lovely day!

I'm going to link up to the following challenges:
