Less is More - Week 39 - Stars

This week Less is More have asked the LIMettes to theme their card around stars.  As it's getting close to Christmas I thought I'd make a Christmas card.  I decided to use this digi stamp of two carolers in a wintery scene.  After I'd printed it out I coloured it using a mixture of Flex and Promarkers and used an embossing pen to gold emboss the star.  The background sky was sponged using Distress Inks.  I die cut a circle from the centre of a card blank and then die cut a scalloped frame.  I added acetate to the back of the aperture, added some foam tape and a little "snow" and placed the image over to make a shaker card.  The sentiment is from my Stampin Up Contempo Christmas.

Thanks for stopping by.
