Star of Bethlehem

Hello~ Well I did it~~yesterday I finished the 3rd gift/money card holder for our youngest daughter--Alissa! I won this Star of Bethlehem stamp from the Belles 'n Whistles Advent Giveaway~~YEAH!!!!~~~THANK YOU SUMMER AND ELISABETH BELL~~~~
We celebrated our Family Christmas last night (the 6 of us) Truly a blessing to Me--Thank You Lord!
Entering in: Stamp Something~~ Holiday Something by Dec 31

CRAFT challenge~~ Thank you ( my cards says with love instead of thank you) Jan 6
Well onto Alissa's card--This stamp so reminds me of her years gone by--she was quite shy and of course the baby :) Used White cardstock and colored image with copics. Used CB winter house folder on DCWV glitter white DP (very sparkly but doesn't really show on picture) Added twinklets over the ground which gave it a soft carpet appearance :-) Placed a rhinestone brad in center of star. Sentiment was a rub on. I dangled a snowflake charm from the Creative Impressions shimmery layered snowflake which I fastened with a beautiful brad from recollections.

Close ups of image. Used foam tape and glue dot pop ups for dimension.

I used a versa mark pen on the darker areas of both gowns and sprinkled with hallographic glitter~~~turned out very nice!!
The finished inside: The design here is from an old thank you note I received in the past. The soft colors and flowers blended so well with the colored image. I added a MS border punched from the sparkly white DP I used on the front of the card. Then stamped tiny snowflakes using Baby blue versa ink. Can kinda see the sparkly dp in this view. Border punched with MS large deep flower bed punch. Wrote a sweet note to Alissa on the scalloped circular insert and of course added the gift of $$$.

Recipe:
Stamps: Elisabeth Bell Star of Bethlehem Paper: DCWV Ink : Memento tuxedo black, copics, Baby blue versa color and versa mark pen Tools: CB winter house folder, MS punches and spellbinders scalloped circle
Embellishments: snowflakes, brads, hallographic glitter and a snowflake charm
