Paper Craft Planet Sketch Whiff of Joy

I am new to Paper Craft Planet, still trying to find my way around there, but came across this Sketch Challenge . I love sketch challenges and am always happy to find the time to do them. Today I used Charlie Bond from Whiff of Joy Stamps. I actually was one of the lucky ones to win this stamp while they had their Advent Calendar blog candy. (Lucky me!!) The stamp is so much fun to color! I stamped with memento tuxedo black and colored with alcohol markers (blick studio, prismas and copics). I added crystal glaze to the glass and the small star. Since I don't own a star shaped punch (never thought I need one, but now I need one!!) I had to draw a star and cut it out. That star is covered with star dust stickles. Sentiments are from SU. I used the "direct to paper" techique around the edges of the designer paper card front. My card measures approx. 6.5 x 4.5 inches.

Stamps: Charlie Bond (Whiff of Joy), Riveting and cute converse (both Su)
Ink: memento tuxedo black, brilliant blue (for dtp the edges)
Paper: bashful blue, barely banana, pacific point (SU), Paper Stack (DCVW-I think), not sure who the maker of the polka dotted paper is.
Accessories: alcohol markers, square step corner punch (SU-retired), stickles, grosgrain ribbon (SU)
The sketch is below

Thanks for looking!
