For the Mix 17 challenge, we were to combine smooth and rough. I watched a great tutorial on the gesso resist technique on the Eclectic Paperie web site and thought that it would make a good 'rough' component to my card. I really wasn't sure where I was going with this card when I made the background; once it was done, I decided silver would be a really good compliment with the color scheme. I ended up using the SU glimmer paper and incorporating MIX 16 into the card as well!
My smooth features are Crystal Effects and heat embossing. My rough features are glitter and speckled gesso.

What a lovely combination of elements! The sparkly stars are a great addition.
