Many Merry Stars

It's Merry Monday time


I'm the hostess this week and I chose....


I couldn't decide between gold or silver so I did one of each.


They're the same except for the color and sentiment.
Both were inspired by this card by Loll (Stamping with Loll).

Since I've embossed, I'll enter the Happy Little Stampers CAS Challenge again.




And I'm off to Pixies Snippet Playground with my stars from snippets.

And a new challenge to me.  My friend JoAnn is a designer over there.



I hope you'll put a star or stars on a Christmas card and bring it over to

Thanks for stopping by.

Enjoy!

Both versions are beautiful, and you can never have too many Christmas cards ready for your stash! What a great idea to use the Gorgeous Grunge stamp behind the star - perfect for stardust! So happy to see the MM Stars challenge as I love stars and I have a new stamp with stars on it so will ink it up today! Thanks for choosing that theme!

I love them both, Bonnie, but the gold glitter shows up much better than the silver on your particular card. Beautiful....I wouldn't mind having some star die-cuts....

Susan said...

Great job on combining challenges! Love that big beautiful sparkly star!
