Love you to the moon and back!

#29 years of that wedded bliss stuff (and counting!)...happy anniversary to my best friend and soulmate!

The base card is white; the dark blue layer has flecks of silver imbedded...almost look like millions of tiny stars.  I covered a sheet of mixed media cardstock with gesso before applying yellow distress paints.  Tarnished Brass distress mica spray onto a damp sea sponge creates a unique texture.  I ran the cardstock through the Crescent Moon & Stars Sizzix die cut and glued to the blue layer with matte Multi Medium.  A bit of graphite pencil was used to darken the left edges of the stars and moon for extra dimension.  White distress crayon was rubbed all over the blue layer to soften the color and make it look more ethereal.  A Marvy punch was used on red Bazzill cardstock to cut out the heart.  It dangles from the tip of the moon with a bit of hemp twine.  The left edge also was smudged with a graphite pencil, the right edge with the white distress crayon.
