bits on the table

Hello. I'm back again with a quick card. This was created literally by bits that were on the table all left over from previous cards.

I got the idea of this card when I thought of a couple of challenges. The base is craft card that was a leftover piece from an A3 card out of which I had cut a 17x17cm card base.

The burlap had been on my table for weeks and finally I found the perfect project for it. All the stars are from a Die'sire die. The central star would have been covered by the central image on other card and so I removed it. It has been gilded with vaious waxes including silver, gold and renaissance gold and sapphire blue.

The sentiment is from the Claritystamp word chains.....I do love them as they are so useful. I had you, a and star so the re is from remember and needed some masking. I stamped in black archival and clear embossed.
Notice the mistake. I forgot the apostrophe. i am pleased to say that I have rectified it but forgot to retake the pic!
The white specks are white frantage from stampendous.
And there you have my card made completely from leftover bits. What do you think?

I would like to enter the card in the following challenges:

Simon says stamp Monday challenge - use some lucky stars
Less is more - what's outside your window.... well i see the night stars

and below you can see I did add apostrophe :)
