For my sample I used the You Got This set and created a galaxy background to go with the greeting I chose because to me there is nothing more calming that a clear night sky where you can count the stars.
To create my card I started with a white top folding card base, a turquoise panel as a mat and then a bristol panel to create my background. 
To create the galaxy background I used Distress Oxide inks in Picked Raspberry, Carved Pumpkin, Squeezed Lemonade, Peacock Feathers and Wilted Violet and randomly sponged them across the panel, next I used Hickory Smoke and Black Soot to cover them. To give it more of a galaxy appearance I splattered the panel with water and then dried it using a heat gun. Next I stamped the greeting in Versamark ink and embossed it in white. To finish the card I added some white acrylic paint splatters.


You have one more stop to make and that is Monica, she has some faboolous projects to show you.

Here is a complete list of everyone's blog in case you lose your way 



Happy Hopping
