This card is for three challenges: MIX65 "Back to Kindergarten" - to incorporate crayons into your project (along with at least one other medium); F4A218 "Stars on THARS" - to use a STAR of some sort ... big, small ... punched, die cut, stamped ... you name it!!!; WT476 "Arbor Day" - Let's put some trees on our cards. They can be stamped, digis, diecuts, branches, trunks of trees.
I chose to incorporate Crayola by using crayon resist. After embossing watercolor paper with the Starry Nights folder, I left the paper in the folder and rubbed white Crayola across the surface. I took the paper out and wet the paper with a brush and applied a lot of blue watercolor. When it dried, I went back over the stars with a damp q-tip to remove the excess color from the stars, and brushed them with Wink of Stella for some sparkle. I cut all the pieces for my scene, added Wink of Stella to the moon and put the scene together. I love how this turned out, it will be my husband's anniversary card (25 yrs!); he didn't know he was a cat lover until he met me, LOL!
As always, thanks for looking!

Awww - how sweet! I LOVE this adorable scene! The best advise my Mother ever gave me was to marry someone who loves cats. I did, and believe it or not his love for cats was actually part of the attraction.

Way to go...3 challenges in one card and each chalkenge turned out great. I had a major fail with the crayon resist technique, so I am even more amazed at how fantastic your stary sky turned out. The black images look stunning against the blue bkg. Just a lovely card and so perfect for your special anniversary.
