A special card and lots of stars

Hello everyone! I hope you are all well, despite the awful weather! Tonight I would like to share a card, special to me, because I made it with someone special in mind, my lovely cyber buddy who lives really far away, in Australia, but whom I feel really close to!
Bonsoir à toutes! J'espère que vous allez bien. Ce soir je vous montre une carte spéciale car je l'ai faite pour une personne adorable, qui vit bien loin, en Australie, mais dont je suis très proche! Voici comment la carte s'ouvre une fois le ruban défait...

This is how it opens...

And the inside of the card...
L'intérieur de la carte...

That was my first attempt at a star-shaped card, I read a tutorial in one of my Magnolia Ink Magazines and thought it would be perfect for this Gorjuss Girl, called Little Star. The longest part was to make all the triangles and all the stars (2 behind the image, 2 for the sentiment on the front and the card itself) and it also made me realise I really needed to buy a scoring tool and board!
C'est mon premier essai de carte en forme d'étoile, après avoir lu un tutoriel dans l'un de mes magazines Magnolia, et cela m'a semblé parfait pour cette Gorjuss Girl nommée "Petite étoile"...

A close up and the recipe...

Stamps: Little Star Gorjuss Girl Sugar Nellie - Swirls Whiff of Joy - Sentiment LOTV
Copics: B00, 01, 02, BG000, C1, 3, 5, 7, 8, E000, 00, R20
Distress Ink for the background and to ink all the edges of the card
DP: Magnolia
Dies: Nestabilities (Circles and Scalloped Circles) for the sentiment, Shapeabilities (Flourish Accent) to decorate the triangles on the outside, CB snowflake die which comes with little stars used to decorate the background
Embellishments: Viva Pearl Pen (ice white) for the swirls, Stardust Stickles and Viva Glitter Liner (Holographic), gems and pearls from stash, white ribbon coloured with Copic

I think that's it! Thank you very much for your visit:-)! Enjoy the rest of your evening and see you soon,
Merci de votre visite et à très bientôt! Bises,
