A Masculine Window Pane Card

This morning I had a little time to visit one of my favorite blogs, "Sooner Rather Than Later."  There I found a simply wonderful card by Miriam Prantner.  It was the inspiration for the card below.  To view her blog post, please click here.  She sponged on vellum and got a really neat look.  It's worth checking out.  :-)

Here's my version:

I had some scrap paper laying on my work table from the last few projects, so I squared up four of the pieces to create a "paned window" card.  To balance the word "Celebrate," I used the deeper Ruby shade in the opposite corner and stamped the majority of the star image on that scrap.

At the last moment I added a touch of black to the star shape.  I was hoping to tie in the thin black frame but I almost think the three black stars are too much.  What do you think?

Supplies used:
Ruby, Slate, Champaigne, Cashmere, Black and White cardstock
Ruby, Slate, Champaigne, and Cashmere ink
"American Celebration" and "Somethin' Special" stamp sets
MS Glitter Glues
Paper Trimmer and Adhesive

Thanks for stopping by!

And a special thanks to Miriam for the inspiration.  :-)

This is fantastic! I LOVE it! It's so fun to see where inspiration takes you, I really love how you stamped the star. The glitter and the black accents really make it special. I think I like yours better than mine!

Your intuition about the black stars was "spot-on!" This is a great look (the shadow of your star beneath the coloured panel. I'll be CASEing your version of Miriam's card. Don't you love how the internet goes 'round and 'round?
