Shining Star

Hi and good afternoon!  We had another few inches of snow here and the kids had a delayed opening...I love these mornings! 
I whipped up this card...ok well I didn't whip it took days! Lol! I did a little here and there but putting the card together after all of the elements were done was super fast! 

started with a 4x5 1/4 sea glass (SSS) cardstock and blended some broken china distress ink around the edges. I used the SSS falling stars stencil and white embossing paste then sprinkled it with silver embossing powder, let it dry and then heat embossed! I love the look of the silver stars! I have to say that I "borrowed" this idea for the card from Debby Hughes (from the Stenciled Card Class)...I just loved it! 
I used the OWH Lil Hoot owl stamp and colored it with Spectrum Noir markers (GB5, DG2, DG3, IG1, GB8, GB10, BG4, BG6, BG8) and cut it out. I stamped the branch again, colored, cut and used foam tape and adhered to the branch and cut the leaves and adhered them! Just gave it a fuller look. I used Zig wink of Stella on the leaves and the owls tummy and ears...just to add shine. I used CTMH liquid glass for the eyes. 
The banner was cut on the Cricut using Girls Makeup Party cartridge cut with its shadow at 1.5 inches! I didn't have a banner die and my silhouette hasn't been working so I was happy to pull out my cricut and cut what I needed! 
The sentiment for the banner is from Cardztv "It's All About You" stamp set...I masked it off so it would fit long ways on the banner! 
I cut two mini tags using "Filled With love"  By Mama Elephant for SSS die and stamp set and adhered one behind the other and hung from the banner using May Arts Natural Twine. 
This has to be one of my favorite cards and I have to say that the Stenciled class was great with lots of tips, ideas and inspiration! 
I am entering this card at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge where it I say thing goes with twine and featuring mama Elephant!
Thanks for stopping by and stay warm!
