Star-Gazing Sweethearts Card

 Continuing my quest to find and use dies and stamps that have not yet had a maiden voyage, I discovered this super cute Lawn Fawn set 'Upon A Star'hidden under some other supplies in my messy craft area.  All of the Lawn Fawn products used for this card were purchased at HM Ben Franklin Crafts.  I started the background for this card by spraying a piece of watercolor paper with Tim Holtz Distress sprays and sprinkling on some Ken Oliver Color Burst powders and sprayig again with water. The excess ink was blotted with a paper towel, hence the patterning along the edges of the paper. Once the paper was dry, I stamped the stars using silver ink and heat embossing with silver powder.  The fox and bunny were stamped in blue Memento ink, colored with Ciopic pens,die cut and adhered to the card with foam dots.  Because I cut the watercolored panel too small, I cut a silver paper to make a second border. I think I like this look more! Yay, for happy accidents!  On the inside of the card I stamped one of the sayings from the Lawn Fawn Lucky Stars stamp set that mades it perfect for an upcoming special occasion. (Shhhh! It's a secret!)
