Seeing Stars With LotV

After I had finished my DT work on Thursday night, I managed to make a Christmas card with this adorable image that I had coloured earlier - it is one of the two LotV stamps I bought at Port Sunlight

It struck me as being particularly appropriate for this week's Passion For Promarkers challenge theme of Stars, so I piled on the star patterned paper, teeny star gems and these gorgoues little sparkly wooden embellishments I found when I was out shopping in John Lewis (they also had li'l Christmas trees in store, and when i have just been onto their website there are all sorts of other dinky Christmas embellishments on there as well!!)

Stamps: Lili of the Valley "Little Trumpet";
Media: Promarkers and Flexmarkers; angel wings and stars dusted with glamour dust;
Papers: Forever Friends Christmas; white pearlescent card embossed with Cuttlebug "Christmas stars" folder;
Supplies: star embellishments from John Lewis; "Joy" charm from The Hobby  House; Papermania teeny star gems; ribbon from my stash.

I used the gorgeous sketch from this fortnight's A Gem of a Challenge #32 (rotated 90 degrees)

Lili of the Valley #117 - Bingo! (Gems / Charms / Emboss)
Charisma #42 - Embossing
Simon Says - Inspired by Rhymes / Fairy Tales
 ("Twinkle Twinkle Little Star")
I ♥ ProMarkers #88 - Ain't It Cute!
ABC Christmas - U is For Unused Stash
(brand new stamp and neglected starry paper)
Totally Gorjuss #103 - Pastel Christmas
Our Creative Corner - Fabulous Faces
Flutterby Wednesday #176 - Open Challenge
 (with fairy, angel or  butterfly)

I really do need to get down to some more serious Christmas card making ... if I could make about 40 more like this I'd be well on the way lol!
