LIM week 39 - Stars

Good morning all!

It's the beginning of another week, that little step ever closer to christmas. I don't know about you, but I still have so much to do for christmas, shopping, wrapping, making and sending cards. Not that I want to panic anyone, but there are only 54 days left!! With that being said I have another christmas card to show you today, one that meets with this weeks challenge over at LIM. Chrissie and Mandi want to see 'stars' this week. There is definately 'a star' on this card, although it might not be the most predominant image! I am also going with the theory that the image used to make the purple backgroud could be interpreted as a modern looking star!!

What do you think?? I've used some very contemporary christmas colours this time!

A dimensional shot....


and of course the inside..... very simple and also a little blurry!!! Sorry about the pic!



Materials

CS: SU Pool Party, Wisteria Wonder and Whisper White

Stamps: SU Delightful Decorations, Contempo Christmas

Tools: Top Note Bigz Die, Stamp-a-ma-jig, Lucky Limeade, Wisteria Wonder and Pool Party marker pens

Misc: Whisper White Organza ribbon, Adhesive Pearls


I am really pleased with how this card turned out! I am normally a more traditional christmas colour girl for my cards (red & green) but I stepped out of my comfort zone with this one and I am so glad I did. I think these new in colours look amazing together!

I hope you can join in the LIM challenge this week and I look forward to visiting you to see what you've created!

Have a great week everyone and thanks for stopping by!

Hugs, Victoria
