Are the Stars Out Tonight.................

I'm trying to crack on with making my Christmas cards right now, so when I saw this week's theme for the challenge over on Less is More is 'Stars' I was really happy as I can enter today's card. 

I used a Kraft basecard, cut the lovely filigree star using a Marianne's Die from blue holographic card and attached it with silver thread.  I then stamped the sentiment from an Inkadinkado set using Memento Bahama Blue ink.  As a finishing touch, I used a Spica Glitter pen to colour over the sentiment to give it a subtle sparkle.

Here in Cornwall it is promising to be a much brighter and drier day as the sun is already shining, unlike yesterday which was dull and damp all day.  Sadly, I have to go to work today, so won't see much of the sun.  I hope you have a wonderful day, wherever you are and whatever you have planned.
