Do you "get it"?
The title reveals the laymans' 'compass' proximity for this card, as a part of the October monthly challenge, CT1010.Yep! Oklahoma! My inspiration for this creation can be found right here. I knew when I saw that poster, that I had 'found' it for the IC255. Talk about a "Starry, starry night!!!" Wow ... seemingly straight from the dark skies seen only way out in the country. ;)
Then I planned to fit this one into a few more Hope You Can Cling To challenges as well ... The HYCCT03 is the 'Unsentimental' challenge, which I adore, since we can write whatever is appropriate at the time. The HYCCT14 is Ribbon, Ribbon, Ribbon! Hey! I love that one on a frequent basis! And finally, I've made sure to include Julie's request for hand-made embellishments, HYCCT21 !
The only stamp used was from Inky Antics. See that "star-filled sky"? The IA stamp + embossing resist provided the star-studded night sky on my card! LOL

The inspiration you've used is pretty fascinating, but how you managed to craft a card like this is way more fascinating. It's fabulous with the handcrafted windmill and look at all that white stuff. Yikes, totally awesome, Tex.
