Card - Non Traditional Christmas Star

I started with a teal card.  I used a DSP by My Mind's Eye - Good Day Sunshine - Bold Dots Paper.  I cut it to leave a small border on the card front.  For the stars I started with a yellow ivory card stock and brushed it with Tim Holtz Distress Stain in Antique Linen and then added a bit of TH Gathered Twig to match the dots in the paper. I cut the stars with the Sizzix Star Die. I used TH Aged Mahogany stain for the small star and applied some to the edges of the yellow and teal stars.  I wanted the greeting to match so I brushed some stain onto the rubber stamp but the coverage was not great. I brushed the edge of greeting with the same Aged Mahogany stain. I dyed a piece of white cotton thread with the same stain.  I wrapped it around the DSP layer then glued it to the card front.  I layered the stars and held them in place with a tiny gold star brad.  The greeting is adhered to the card front over the thread with 3D foam tape.
