Starry Night

Hello everyone and thanks so much for stopping by!

Today was my turn to post to the Whimsy Inspirations blog, and since it's my first time doing that, of course I wanted to show a brand new card.

The stamp I have used is an older one by Crissy Armstrong "Starry Night", but it's new to me and so so cute!!

The image has been heat embossed and colored with derwent coloursoft and prismacolor pencils. The trees outside the window were stamped and stamped "off" using SU ink and glitter was applied. The little star is also part of the stamp, I just cut it out and added some silver stickles glitter to it.
I used papers from the DCWV linen stack. Embellished with some ribbon, more sparkles, lace and snowflake brads in the corners. The sentiment is also from Whimsy Stamps "Winter Letter Seals" by raindrop echo.

I'd love to enter this card to the following challenges:
