A Star for Merry Monday

Good Merry Monday morning


It's Deanne's turn to host the challenge this week.

I love what she chose!



I used my Star Framelits to cut a star from a piece of
Distress Woodgrain Cardstock and cut a smaller star from that cutout.

I adhered the woodgrain piece to a Crumb Cake card base
and popped the smaller star in the out cut.

One of those little wooden snowflakes from last year's Christmas catalog
perked that star right up.

This one was quick and easy.

Now it's your turn.

Can't wait to see what you come up with.

Be sure to share with us at
Merry Monday

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Enjoy!
