In a Galaxy Far Far Away

At Shopping our Stash Weekly the theme is "In a Galaxy Far Far Away".  I just stumbled upon this blog.  And I love the way they the challenges encourage you with some unusual topics.

To create the background, I used Color Bursts and Brusho (black).  I sprinkled some powder around and the spritzed with water.  It is a really cool technique, as no 2 backgrounds will be exactly alike.  Very pretty!

The stamps from Neat and Tangled (Time Warp and A Long Time Ago) were embossed in white.  I used a stencil (Simon Says Stamp - falling stars) to add some small gold stars.

Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge is to make your own background.

I am also putting this card into Darnell's NBUS Challenge #6 - where I finally got to use all these never been used before goodies on this card.  And where I finally got to enter one of her challenges.  Darnell has a great blog, if you've never been - try it!

Busy busy - I feel like the rabbit that keeps going, and never stops.  
So, I Gotta go - thanks for taking a peek!
