Lovely as a Tree Starlight card

This card is simple, but stunning I think.  It uses the very old Lovely as a Tree stamp set, along with the new Star of Light stamp set from the 2016 holiday catalog.  Lovely as a Tree is one of my all time favorite stamp sets and can be used for just about any occassion you need a card for.  Today, I have used it for a Christmas card.

I first masked off an area using Post-It tape and sticky notes to form the rectangle for my focal image area.  I then sponged on Night of Navy and Marina Mist inks into the area.  I stamped the cluster of trees from Lovely as a Tree on top of the sponging.  The sentiment is stamped in Night of Navy ink and comes from the Star of Light stamp set.  It is one of my favorites from the holiday catalog.  It has many wonderful sentiments along with the images.  It is a large stamp set and also has a coordinating set of framelits to go along with it. Today,  I just used the sentiment and one of the small stars.  I did smudge a little ink below the sentiment, but didn't have time to redo the card.  I embossed the small star in gold to the left of the center tree.
