Double D The Moon and the Stars

"Fly me to the moon , and let me play among the stars. 
Let me see what spring is like on Jupiter and Mars." 
For some reason that song came to mind when I saw this Mood Board. 
These pictures are so much fun. 

Last year I was so behind on Christmas cards that it became a stress to get them done.   I vowed that would not happen this year so when a challenge works for a Christmas card, that is what I am doing. 

I started by sponging a background with a masked moon and then used a stamp for some stars and and the sentiment.  I put the Amy Designs Vintage Village die cut on top. I cut it in black and white and did some fussy cuts to add the black to the die cut.  I also used some gold glitter paper to back the windows of the church and for a few extra stars. 

We would love to see what you have in mind for our Moon and Stars Challenge.  One random participant will win this fun die.   

The team has some fabulous inspiration for you at Double D Challenge Blog.  Go take a peek and then grab some stars and or  a moon supplies and inspire us.

Wish upon a Star

The theme of this week's Dies R Us Challenge is "You are a Star".  This card is unusual for me because there are no flowers, no butterflies, no sponging....nothing but stars and a sentiment.  I think it would make a great guy card.

I used two dies from the Dies R Us Store. I decided to use some PTI paper for my background and go with a blue and white scheme. I  cut a lot of stars in blue and white.  I just kept playing with them until some sort of composition occurred. When I was done, I decided it needed a little pop of color so I cut some yellow stars.  I ended up just using a few of the small ones.
