Paper Sweeties...Wish Upon a Star

Morning all! I've got a little post inspiration card to share with you using the new Paper Sweeties' stamps that were released yesterday. I took Mojo Monday's sketch and kept the accents to a minimum...(ok, you're gonna look at the card and say 'yeah, right!') but for me, it's really subdued. I will have to say that there's a lotta dots, though ;) :

The papers are from Maja Design's Life in the Country collection, the exact paper names are Sowing Seeds, Close to the Lake, Close to the Lake (bs) and Kitchen Garden (bs). I punched out a star with MFT's Star Stax and dotted it with a bit of liquid pearls. The sentiment panel is stamped with Paper Sweeties' Once Upon a Time sentiment onto a Petite Scallop Nestie, sponged with Bashful Blue ink, then dotted with both White Opal and Platinum Liquid Pearls. I added a couple of fabric flowers to the sentiment and also added a Daisy Chain lace strip over a length of Night of Navy Satin ribbon. There is a chain of Soft Blue Zva pearls both down the center of the daisy chain and around the perimeter of the card. (It looked kinda boring without it).

Here's Mojo Monday's sketch:
