First, I had to use masking fluid with a brush to save the white paper for the star. Then I painted it, put kosher salt in the sky, let it dry, and rubbed the masking fluid off each card, double stick taped it to the cardstock and glued the hymn on the inside. I was very happy with the card and I have received very positive feedback. I used Arches 90 lb cold press paper and Winsor and Newton watercolors. Vicki posted a photo of the one I sent her on her blog. Thanks!
