Star Gazing

I used the lovely Lavinia 'Star Gazing' stamp for this 65th Spring Fold birthday card. To get the effect of the moon behind the hill, I used a circle mask and inked the sky first.  Next I removed circle mask and used torn paper to cover the sky and then inked the grass.  It took a few attempts - I had a mental block of the best way to get the effect of the moon behind the hill! The inked image was matted on silver pearlised card, although it looks grey in the photo. I used tiny clear gems for the stars and black gems along the silver border punched base.  

I would like to enter my card for the following challenges:
