6 stars for Christmas

The image is from a free font Christmas silhouettes, the sentiment is also computer generated, the gold stars are from a recycled Christmas card, the halo is filled with gold glitter glue, and the card is finished off with some gold ribbon.
I was inspired with the sketch from Card Positioning Systems and entering for their challenge.

Crochet flower card

Purple again, one of my favourite colours, I had fun learning how to crochet, I made this flower and dyed it with violet reinker to match the backing card which I embossed with swiss dots, I then added a button to the centre of the flower, the flower stem was stamped with a stamp from Stampin Up Mixed Boquet, and embossed with white onto black card. The sentiment was computer generated.
This is for challenges at -

Crafty Anns Challenge - embossing

Practical Scrappers - Flower

Magical Crafts Fortnightly Challenge - Flower

Tuesday Throwdown - Dry Embossing

Craftalicious challenge - Monotone
