Star of Wonder

Good morning. I finally had a chance to start the August Verve challenges (VLVAug2013). This card is actually for week 2 even though I don't have week 1 completed yet.

I received some brand new Christmas papers in the mail last week and knew immediately that this sketch was perfect for the Teresa Collins Santa's List pad. I combined them with a stamp from the Verve Star of Wonder set. I stamped the text onto a piece cut with a Lifestyle Crafts nesting die and then matted it. I cut the star with a Papertrey Ink die and then covered it with Silver Ranger Stickles. The camera made it look dark but it's really very light and silvery in real life. I layered it with a mini doily cut with My Favorite Things Die-namics and then added a snowflake cut with a Taylored Expressions die, topping it with a small clear rhinestone. A few sequins completed the clean, simple and elegant look I wanted. I'm really wanting to do more simple with no extra postage required Christmas cards this year.
