Seeing stars


Firther to yesterday's post it seems there is something funny going on with blogger as I had a lot of comments on here and Facebook from people who have also suddenly lost a number of followers. At least the number has stabilised now. I made this card for some friends. Always a challenge as she doesn't like cute images and I have to think of something different every year. I stamped an Inkylicious script stamp in brown and then used shabby white frantage. I diecut the stars using a Sizzix primitive star die and then put them through a crimper. I added some jute ribbon, a snowflake die, wooden sentiment and some enamel dots. I really like how this turned out and must make some more like this next year if I remember.
