Very different one for me!

2nd post today, see earlier post for my Crafty Cardmakers DT card. I can't remember the last time I made a card without stamping! And it's not cute either! A friend asked me for a card in a hurry, but not a cute one and with no real 'theme', so I thought maybe stars would work. I had lots of fun making this, it all came together very easily, but now that it's done I think maybe it looks a bit 'sea-side' lol, so I hope it's ok!

I've used a large 8"x8" card blank. I've cut nestie stars from coredinations card, then embossed them in the big shot with the cuttlebug spots & dots folder, and sanded the embossing back. I think the papers are Papermania, I've had them for a while so I'm not sure. Lettering is cut with the sizzix 'night & day' alphabet. Added some MME buttons and fibres - love this stuff, but does it look a bit too much like sea weed on here? Eek, what do you think, is it ok?

I'm entering this one for the following challenges:
