Star of Wonder

Today's card is for the October Viva la Verve Sketch Week 3 sketch.

All those circles in the sketch threw me at first. I thought of several ways to use them, finally discarded all ideas and went back to my original thought. I first cut the background panel from Bazzill Basics Textured card stock using a Lil Inker Designs Stitched rectangle. I also cut the diagonal piece from Hawaiian Shores card stock and then stamped the sentiment from the Verve Star of Wonder set. Apparently this set is retired because I couldn't find it in the Verve shop. I hope not though as it is one of my favorite sets. I cut the various stars from Hawaiian Shores, Simply Chartreuse and Poppy Red card stock scraps using the Verve Starry Die set. And since I can't seem to make a card without using some type of embellishment, I topped the stars with pearls.
