Christmas Star

There's a theme challenge at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown this week.  The card you make should showcase stars.  So here's what I came up with.

The hardest part for me was decided what colors to use.  I started digging through scraps I
had and settled on this, sort of, blue green scheme. I used an old Sizzix originals die for
the star and dry embossed it with a cuttlebug folder.  I thought the star could use some
color so I swiped an ink pad on it.  I stamped the greeting and cut into a banner.  Then I
decided something else was needed so I started adding bling. At first I just added the blue
gems but then remembered I had these crystal swirls and cut them apart and added them
where I thought they looked best.  I think it helps "showcase" the star, right? So there you
have it. Another Christmas card done and about 58 more to go! Thanks for taking a look!
