Stars! Christmas Card for Country View Challenges

Hello everyone, nice to have you here today!
It´s the first of December and that means - a new challenge over at Country View Challenges!
This month I am the host of the challenge and I want to see "stars" on your projects!
This can be on christmas cards, as a background, stars in heaven, or - you think outside the box and find some celebrities?

For my first project I have chosen to make a little christmas card, this time not traditional, but modern and colorful.

It is very hard to take a good photo, because the gold on it is so very shiny, look!

This is what I did:
I used the wrinkle free technique. I put DO picked raspberry and mermaid lagoon on my crafting mat and sprayed them with water. Then I dipped my paper on it and dried it with my heating tool.
 I spread some DecoArt Extreme Sheen 24K Gold with a brayer on top...

 and stamped the stars from the Rubber Dance Grungy Stuff stamp set with the same paint on white cardstock. Make sure to clean your stamp immediately, otherwise you can ruin it!
When the paint was dry, I fuzzy cut them and glued them, after I darkened the edges, to my card.

I stamped and embossed the Merry Christmas and added some stars with awhite Posca pen. The edges are stamped with one of the borders from the Rubber Dance Doodle Borders #1 stamp set and distressed the edges with DI black soot. Then I glued the paper to a card.

I hope you will make something with stars for the challenge too!
Thank you for your visit today! See you in a few days with my second project!
