Wish upon a star

The current theme over at Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge is 'Seeing Stars'. This is my second card of the week - mostly as it was the card front I originally had in mind to 'upcycle' - right under my nose hiding in the box where I couldn't see it first time round:
I used:

- 6" x 6" square white card stock

- silver mirri card, behind the patterned paper and then with the main image from the card mounted onto a piece and the trimmed sentiment added below

- blue patterned paper, with teensy silver stars on by Craftwork Cards (had it for years!)

- a couple of Josy Rose silver star nail heads at either end of the sentiment

This is also for Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra - where the theme is always 'anything goes'.

I still need to get a wiggle on after those pesky bookmarks are finished and do some batches of Christmas cards. It's either that or fall out with a few folk before Christmas!



  1. You are like star here in blog word-you shine with your stunning work-this card is special like all yours
    hugs Tamara

  2. As long as you don't fall out with me thats fine Di. Another fab card.
    If you need any shopping doing then I have two little shoppers on my blog today to do it for you :-)

  7. Brill up-cycled card, love the star and the papers.

    Soz about not entering the playground this week and my Grandson was going to write you a letter, but getting a paper cut on his finger, biting his tongue, trapping another finger in a draw and starting with conjuctivitis it went by the by.

    Strange week, not made one single card and that is very rare for me.
    Lotsa of stuff has gone in the bin though, re-cycling seems to be my hobby at the moment.
    Have a good weekend.
