The True Spirit of Christmas

***This is my second post of the day.  Please click here for my Friends with Flair/Wee Memories/Use It Tuesday/Simon Says Stamp card!***
I decided to rebel against my usual schedule and not do any cleaning this morning.  I went to the Craft Cave instead for a little play time and made a card for the current Less Is More challenge to use stars.  The picture is kind of dark and I don't have time to mess around with Photoshop as I have to be out the door in 15 minutes and off to work.  It'll have to do as I won't get home in time tonight to fix it and make the challenge deadline.  
I've had these stamps for ages now and I think they were a freebie with a magazine.  I stamped the sentiment with ColourBox Burnt Copper which I've never used before but I like the reddy colour of it.  I had nothing to match it for the stars so I inked up some cardstock and die cut the stars out of that.  I like that the smaller one came out a little darker than the larger one - gives it a bit more dimension I think - and I added some Doodlebug gems and Glossy Accents for shine!  Gotta jet now!  Hope you all have a lovely day!

Fabulous Jen! Love that swirl from the star, and another great sentiment, I really like how the fonts are blocked!

I love the gloss & shine! And the coppery colour against the blue is really striking. Love that font :)

I love the star and the clean yet gorgeous texture it adds to your card!

I just love how you make things work - no matching star so you just create something. Everything works together so well...you are brilliant at putting together the right sentiment with the right flourish with the right embellishment - the styles of each are perfect together.
