Mama Elephant - Bear Hugs Anniversary Card

Hello Everyone!
Today I am sharing a card I made for my parents anniversary. I used distress inks and water to create the galaxy / night time starry background and the Bear Hugs stamps from Mama Elephant for the stamped image.

I love blending inks and using a toothbrush to flick water onto the card to make a night sky - so much fun and a really pretty way to make your own background papers. I also Spritzed the background in a shimmery silver to make it more magical. To finish I added die cut and stamped letters, the cute bears and the little moon - tied to the letters with cotton.

I have entered this card in the following challenges : 
Crafts Galore Encore - Use a stamp for August
Sisters of Craft - Anything Goes Aug Challenge
613 Avenue Create - Aug Challenge Anything Goes

Thanks for looking,
