Simon Says...Star Light Star Bright

Hi Everyone...welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog...thank you for joining us for last week's challenge...we hope you can join us this week too because...

and the theme for this week is...
I made a card with "surprise surprise" lots of star themed products from Tim Holtz...

I started off by cutting a panel of black card to measure 5.1/"2 square and used a Sizzix Circle Thinlits to cut out the apeture...
and shame on me, I've had the Distress Metallic Crayons for a while and had never got round to trying them out. So I looked out the Starry Layering Stencil and scribbled away with the Brushed Pewter Crayon, smudging the crayon into the stencil with my finger...
highlighted the edges of the card and the aperture with the crayon and oh boy, the shimmer and shine is absolutely amazing...
I added Splatters of White Gesso, die cut the snowy slopes from white card using the Tim Holtz/Sizzix Home For The Holidays Thinlits and added a piece of  Christmas Deco Sheet...
I added dots to highlight the slopes using a Black Faber Castell pen, Gilded Christmas Remnant Rub stars and trees from Home For The Holidays die cut from black and white cardstock.
a die-cut Merry from Retro Merry Christmas and a Quotations Sticker...
I added a strip of Christmas Deco Sheet to the bottom of the card, the die-cut car and parcels from Home For The Holidays and a Mini Woodland Tree coloured with Peeled Paint Distress Spray Stain and tipped with Ranger Texture Paste.
I then matted the panel on to Metallic Kraftstock and a card blank made from Christmas Kraftstock.
