Christmas Star CCMC274

We have a lovely color challenge this week at Create with Connie and Mary to inspire us:  Soft Sky, Raspberry Ripple and Very Vanilla!  That beautiful single stamp, Christmas Star, quickly came to mind!  I recently purchased it and couldn't wait to use it!


Soft Sky cardstock is the background for the star; I stamped it with Silver Encore ink and the swirly stamp from Everything Eleanor.  It really gives the card some shimmer and shine!  This was layered onto Very Vanilla then a Raspberry Ripple card base.


Very Vanilla Seam Binding Ribbon is gatherd across the bottom of the front; the sentiment is from the More Merry Messages set, carried over from last year's catalog and still available.  Basic Pearls adorn each end of the  banner and the center of the star.

Here again is the challenge this week; isn't this a pretty color combination?!  

 Be sure and check out the Create with Connie and Mary blog where you will find some more card projects using this combination!  The Challenge Team always has such inspiring cards!

I really love this star and I love how you have used it in the Cherry and it just pops right off the card! Very pretty!

Wow! LOVE the silver background swirls...I've lost my pad from when we carried them before, so I need to re-order it! You rocked the Color Challenge!
