Christmas Stars

I was honoured to be invited to join the Crafty Boots Challenge as a guest designer for their current 'Stars' challenge and this is the card that I have made:

I have used papers from the Carta Bella 'so this is Christmas' collection and cut the stars out with an X-cut die.  I inked the edges of the stars and popped some of them up with dimensional tape.


I added a twine bow and the sentiment tags are LOTV stamps.


I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Christmas Card Challenge 53 - Anything Goes
Brown Sugar Challenge 122 - Anything Goes
That Craft Place Challenge - Anything Goes
Completely Christmas Challenge 39 - Anything Goes + use something beginning with S (Stars)
A Creative Romance Challenge - Something Old (old papers, old dies, old sentiment stamps)

Thank you so much to the Crafty Boots team for inviting me to guest design for them, I have really enjoyed creating my card.  Make sure you pop over to the Crafty Boots Challenge blog and join in with the Stars Challenge .

Thank you for calling this morning, please leave a comment so that I know you've been and will be able to come and visit you.
