Guest Star Stamper: Stellar Wishes

Guess what?  I'm a Guest Star Stamper at the Color Throwdown today!  And I was SUPER excited when I saw this week's color challenge:

Dude, I seriously love that picture of the Eiffel Tower!  Isn't it gorgeous?!  I interpreted the colors as Pool Party, Wisteria Wonder, Basic Black, and Whisper White, and I made this:

I'd seen cards with that kind of background before, but I went to search for it in the SCS tutorials and I kept thinking it was called "galaxy" something or other but it's Northern Lights :)  This was another one of those techniques that up until I finished the card I thought I was going to have to chuck it and start over, my background just didn't look "right" to me until I got the Pool Party EP "stars" on there.  I didn't use the Embossing Buddy on the paper before I stamped the Gorgeous Grunge spatter, so I got stray embossing powder on there but I think it kind of works for what I was going for with this card so I'm calling that a happy accident.  The star is also Pool Party EP on top of Wisteria Wonder cardstock, and I wasn't sure what to do for a sentiment until I found that "Wish Big" from A Dozen Thoughts and it was perfect!

So thanks to the Color Throwdown team for letting me be a Guest Star Stamper today!  I had a ball making my stellar card :)

I can SEE why they call it "Northern Lights". Very nice. It looks great with the star on top. LOVE that photo of the Eiffel Tower, too. Isn't it just amazing? I think I could sit and look at it for hours (plus watch all the people coming and going). Sounds like my idea of a perfect day. GREAT JOB!

Such a pretty card Lynn. Love the galaxy background (I almost did the same) with the star. The torn edges look great. Congrats on being our GSS this week.

Love your torn edges as it takes me back to beginning days of stamping MANY years ago! The colors make a wonderful starry night background!
