Oh, Those Summer Nights...FMS #92

Just under the wire with a submission to Freshly Made Sketches challenge #92:
I will come back later and fill you in on the materials I used for this card, but basically, I rotated the sketch and took it pretty literally.  Focussed on the summer night sky, which is marvelous seen from our cottage on the beach (no light pollution). **edited**Used a panel in navy blue, die-cut with Simon Says Stamp's Circle Border die, mounted over silver holographic ripple paper from Paper WIshes, for some MAJOR twinkle. The Nike-like swoosh is cut from Wausau paper's pearlescent cardstock, also available at Paper Wishes. Alpha-stamps are Keyboard Uppercase from Close to My Heart.**
I added some mini sparkles, coloured with alcohol markers, to create the constellation of Orion, complete with red Betelgeuse on on shoulder...
Hope you can see it!

Check back with Freshly Made Sketches tomorrow--oops--Tuesday for a new sketch to try!
