The Great Outdoors

Hi there! Today I made a cute card to play along with a few challenges using these adorable stamps from Mama Elephant. I wanted to give the bears a starry sky to gaze up at and I made the background with some distress inks and pearly water - it's very shimmery in real life:) I followed the sketch from this weeks 'Cas(e) this sketch challenge for placement of all my stars.
