Starry Night--NOT by Van Gogh

My favorite painting is Van Gogh's Starry Night.  And, although I know this looks nothing like it, after this card was created Starry Night is all I could think of.  So, that is what I am calling it--Starry Night--NOT Van Gogh's.  The main star on this card is the Christmas Star, or "the Light of Heaven."  I added sparkle to the star with Sink of Stella and a shining rhinestone in the center.  I added to my starry background with Gorgeous Grape Glimmer Dots and some extra stars stamped on both the DSP and cardstock.

This card was inspired by both the color challenge for CAS Colours & Sketches 301 and the Sketch from Freshly Made Sketches 366.  However, I didn't get the card made or blog post done in time to enter in those challenges.  I'm still working on balancing my schedule to get all family and personal responsibilities done well as well as balancing in person events with online posting.  My team party was today, so my blog post didn't quite get done in time.  I'll keep working on balancing and scheduling and maybe it will all come together someday.  I think I'll make that my 2019 New Year's Resolution.

I did manage to make it to WWC199 in time.  Make sure you head over to the challenge to see the inspiration cards by the design team and other creative entries.

Here is a pic of Van Gogh's Starry Night.  Does this card bring that picture to your mind at all?
