Winter Wonderland

Meet today's card.
A very fun one to create and I think it would make a great card for a guy.

I got out my Penny Black stamp called A Splash of Winter.  I inked it using some watered down Brushos with a paint brush and stamped it 3 times across my card front, each time re-applying more Brushos directly to the stamp.
I stamped the sentiment from the Christmas Cheer set with black Memento ink then splattered some more of the Brushos on for interest.
To finish my card off, I punched out a star and added silver using a Krylon silver pen and edged the outside using the silver as well.

Adding my card to these challenges:
