Star of Wonder

Welcome back to another Tuesday Morning Sketch Challenge!  Hope everyone had a very Happy and Blessed Thanksgiving!  We enjoyed a quiet family dinner, very relaxing and enjoyable.
Everyone survive the Black Friday craziness?  I opted to stay home and do a little Internet shopping.
Onto this weeks challenge!  Our sponsor this week is the totally adorable Stamp Fairy!  Head on over and check out all her super cute digital stamps, and double bonus, she is having a sale!!
For this weeks sketch I used Stamp Fairy's Barry Best Friends 1

This card has a lot of sparkle and shine that just doesn't show up in the picture.  The image was colored with Prismacolor pencils; I then fussy cut around the bears and ground.  I used Distress inks to create a night sky.  Adhered the image cut out to the "sky" panel, then used a circle die to cut it all out.  Layered my image circle onto a circle of silver card stock.  Added a die cut star, some gelly roll pen dots to resemble other stars and embossed the ground with "snow" using my versamark marker and white tinsel EP.  Used my Sizzix flourish die and pale blue vellum, a few star embellies and gems to create the corner flourish embellishment.  Embossed some blue shimmer paper with snowflakes and added a strip of silver ribbon.
Thanks for stopping by, hope you take time to play along with us this week at TMS!  I'd love to see how this weeks sketch inspires your!
