Treemendous - Sketch

Hello bloggers, a card made using a sketch today.

This card began as an A6 white hammered card blank.  First I cut some blue glitter card to make a mat slightly smaller than the card blank.  Next I cut some navy card  stock to make a smaller mat to sit on top of the glitter card mat.  These mats were then adhered to the card blank.  Using an off cut of striped card stock I cut a strip of card to make a ribbon strip across the card and adhered it into place.  From the glitter card mat I punched out two glitter stars and adhered them to the ribbon strip.  You can not see the cut out stars as the navy mat covers the cut outs.  Next I cut a star shape out freehand, I must admit I struggled with this shape and must have cut it out half a dozen times.  Onto the star shape I stamped a tree image using distress ink faded jeans and a stamp set from Creative Expressions 'trees, leaves and flowers'.  The star was  then adhered to the card base.  Finally I stamped my sentiment using faded jeans distress ink and Clarity Stamps 'letterbox' stamp set.  This was then cut out by hand and adhered to the card blank.

This card is being entered into the following challenge:-
