Star of Wonder


Well, it's not like me to get two cards made in a week, but here I am! Totally Gorjuss and City Crafter both have "star" challenges, and Crafts 4 Eternity's challenge is "holiday" using their sketch. Paper Cutz has an anything goes challenge, and Opus Gluei wants something un-ordinary (blue is NOT the color usually associated with Christmas). Finally, Made By Momo has a birthday challenge, and of all the people I love and who have impacted me the most, the birthday that we celebrate on December 25 is the most precious to me. (I've since removed it from this challenge). This card didn't scan so well, but there is a glittery gold star on the paper just under the image, and the dark blue paper under that has tiny crystal stars (all individually applied by hand -- whew!) I know it's still August, but this year I intend to get my Christmas cards made AND mailed on time.

I'm so glad you participated in this challenge, this is a lovely card. You're right, blue is not often associated with Christmas but you've made a card that is sweet and gentle. Love the embellishments too!
