B'nW Star of Bethlehem

Wow I sure got the bug to create this week---A good kinda bug ~~Hee Hee
I followed the sketch from The Beary Sweet challenge blog:

I made a Gate fold card using my BnW Star of Bethlehem stamp that I won last advent season :)  Thanks so very much Summer and the DT and Lucky Me :))

Altered image from christmas to summer setting :)) Colored with Copics. Added prima glitzy flower where star was and flower soft over the holly leaves on sash and in little girls hair along with complimenting mom's hairbow with it also. Viva Decor Lt blue pearl pen accented Mom's slipper, collar,and sleeve ruffle. Stardust stickles were used on little one's slippers, collar and cuff of sleeve.

Couldn't decide which pic to choose to showed both ;))  I think I need new camera or battery or something LOL

Shows the folds!!

Inside of card~~ MS around the page punch on dp. Accented with SU butterflies~~ homemade flower~~and pearls of viva decor iced white and blue glitter liner!!  Message area made with SB labels 1 and inked with TH faded jeans ink.

Pic showing that corner of image can be tucked behind flower to keep closed  as well as the stardust stickle glitz around all the matting :))

Shows glitz again as well as the Viva Decor blue glitter liner I used to enhance wrapped flower stem, flower center, teeny tiny butterfly and the swirls on the DP!!
