CCT Stars

Time for another challenge at Cute Card Thursday, this time we would like to see stars on your creation.  Our sponsor for this challenge is  Whimsy Stamps, check out the CCT blog for details and inspiration from the DT.

My card is a bit of an experiment, and honestly I'm not sure it worked.  I stamped the cute Don and Daisy stamp and coloured with my Copics adding a silver pen to the stars in the picture and for falling snow, then lots of Stardust Stickles on the ground.

Here's the card:

The experimental part is the silver Viva Decor Inca Gold wax I've used to rub around the edges over my embossed faux stitching, I think I went a bit heavy with my finger in places .. .. The patterned paper is from Marianne Design Cosy Christmas pad.

More stars with a couple of Marianne Design stary die cuts in silver card, and clear star gems added.  I've also added a floral corner with poinsettia flowers and fronds cut/punched from sparkly card,  and little leaves cut with pale green card.
These are the MD dies I used:
LR0142 mini poinsettias

The Stampavie and More blog challenge is for Christmas creations, so I can enter with them.  I've not had time to go back and check for other challenges, and my craft stash is now packed away as I'm not sure what is happening over the Holidays.  Mum wasn't so good yesterday, but still in line for a bed at Bodmin Hospital on the Stroke Rehabilitation ward so she can get the therapy to enable her to come home .. .. fingers crossed it happens this week so I can go visit her.  Thank you for stopping by my blog, especially as I'm not around much at the moment and haven't been able to blog hop much to leave comments.  Love and Hugs x
