Another entry into the Verve Visual sketch contest

Long title post huh? I wanted to submit another card...might do a couple more this month...so be on the look out! What is this contest all about? Check out the Verve Visual blog here and read all about it!
For this set I actually used some images that I had recieved from a friend (thanks Danielle) I really love the images and I thought it went really well with this layout.. I did the paper tole technique again, I just love the way this technique looks...like I said before, time consuming, but definately worth it! This card measures 9x8.25.
The stamp sets that I do know are star ligt starbright and winter wonder both by Verve Visual
The stars are gold embossed and then I added the gems. The images are stamped on water color paper and then sponged with basic black ink and then water colored and sponged again. There is faux stitching around the image panel as well as on the back piece.
Above is a close up of the paper tole before I sponged it. Doesn't it look neat?
Thanks again for stopping by!
Happy Stampin'

The paper tole looks fabulous. What a cool concept for the card, too!
