PBSC December - Anything Goes (Optional 'Sparkle & Shine')

It's the first Saturday of the month, so that means it's time for a new Penny Black Saturday Challenge...where the theme is:

'Anything Goes'
'Sparkle & Shine'

As usual, we are sponsored by the awesome 1-2-3 Stitch:
Prize - a $20 voucher!

I inked up one of my older wood mounted Penny Blacks...'Cat on the Moon', and coloured it using watercolour pencils...adding some sparkle to the stars & moon using a Wink of Stella pen. I made a super sparkly background by repeat stamping a panel of stars (from the 'Starry Backdrops' set by Lawn Fawn) in Versamark Ink on navy card, then heat embossing it using 'Metallic Gold Sparkle' embossing glitter from WOW. I matted everything on to gold glitter card for even more sparkle. 

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
