Newborn King in Green and Blue

Good Thursday, Stampers!
I'm posting my card today based two different old color challenge over at  Color Throwdown  

and the current sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches.  
As you know, I really enjoy playing along with challenge blogs.  It's been such a great help to me because I'm not naturally gifted in design, color or composition.  I've needed practice and these challenges have really helped in getting my creative juices flowing, and have given me a place to start.  If you're like me, you might find this will help you, too.  :-)

My card:

I like the Lucky Stars embossing folder and thought it would be a simple background for the nativity scene in The Newborn King stamp set.  (I love this set!) I embossed the star with silver embossing powder to add a little zip, but still keeping the card clean and simple.  In the same way, I added the silver background circle because I liked the illusion of a halo. The rhinestones in the sky add a little sparkle and light for a special birth!  :-)
 I hope you enjoyed today's card.  Have a great day and try to get some creative time this weekend and maybe even play along with a challenge blog! 
Be blessed,
