Holiday Star Dust

Happy Wedneday to all of you.  I hope you're having a great week so far.  I have a holiday card today.


I was trying to decide which of my adorable stamps to use for my Wedneday post over on the Simply Sassy Blog.  I knew I wanted to do a Christmas card and as I was looking through my stamps, I spotted Star Dust.  It's been a while since I had inked her up and I thought she would be perfect for a holiday card.  I finally bought the Martha Stewart Snowflake Trim punch the other day and used it on my card and added some pearls to the snowflakes.  All my papers are stitched and I've used Glamour Dust on her shoes and the "star dust" she's sprinkling around.  I added a bow and then inked the edges of the glittery stars I purchased a long time ago at Michaels - not sure if the inking shows up very well.  One more Christmas card done and added to my stash!



Thank you for stopping by.
