Tree in Moonlight

I've wanted to do this technique since I saw it on this blog.  Sherry even has a video showing how she used this shimmer and pastel technique.  Check it out.  I cased the technique, but used a different stamp set.
Stamp: Lovely as a Tree
Paper: Basic Black, Brushed Silver, Whisper White
Ink:  Versa Mark, Stampin Pastels
Accessories: Finial Press embossing folder, Pearls, Frost White All Purpose Ink, Black Embossing Powder, 1 3/4" circle punch, 1/8" black ribbon, mini glue dots.
Technique:
Panel: The Whisper White panel was painted with Frost White All purpose Ink.  After it was dry, two shades of green pastel were applied to the bottom of the panel for the grass, and 2 shades of blue to the sky.  A 1 3/4" mask was placed in the sky to make the moon.  The entire panel was then rubbed with a paper towel to blend the colors.
The tree was embossed with black embossing powder

The card base is basic black, with a layer of brushed silver embossed with the finial press embossing folder.
