Starry Starry Distress

Hello.  Welcome.  Still feeling the jingle and another christmas card, this time with a distress ink background inspired by the tutorial at MFP.  

I sponged two shades of green distress ink onto a pre-embossed card, added some splats using a distress stain dabber and sprinkled with water.  I stamped the sewn star from MFP USA Heros set and embossed with black powder.  I added some ric rac ribbon and small buttons.  The sentiment is from MFP Dear Santa set.  

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz
