I seem to be giving love to a lot of my older stamps this season...LOL...however, I think it fits the request perfectly!

I created the background with TH distress inks by patting Wild Honey, Chipped Sapphire and Dusty Concord on a silicone mat, spritzing ever so lightly with water, then placing the cardstock on top to absorb the colour. I had pre-planned where I wanted the colour to be such as yellow mostly where the stars were located, and each angel a different colour. The first one came out too wet and the colours too diluted. The second one was exactly what I was going for! Then I spritzed again lightly with Glimmer Mist Heritage Gold. After the background was totally dry, I swiped the stamp with Versamark, and heat embossed the image with fine black powder.
I added a Northern Star cut from sparkly gold paper. Image is layered on gold paper.
I will give my neighbour the card tomorrow and hope it meets with her approval. Thanks for stopping by!
