Merry Monday #147 - Stars

Good morning friends.  Playing along with the Merry Monday challenge where Bonnie asks us to use a star on our Christmas card.  The stamps I used are an older retired SU! set called "The Sounding Joy" and I love this set that features both a star and one of my most favorites words "Joy"!  Take a look:




I also used a couple Spellbinder star dies to create the red glitter open star that I tucked under the ribbon, and the PTI "Super Star Border Die" for the red glittered strip of stars down the one edge of the card.  It doesn't show up very well in my photo, but I stamped the "Joy" in Delicata's Silvery Shimmer pigment ink and then embossed over it with clear embossing powder.  It gives off a real delicate and soft shimmer against the boldness of the red that I wish I could have captured in the photo, instead of the way it just looks like gray!  I was so excited too when I found a piece of vellum in my stash that was embossed with stars, and had to use that on my card too! :0)  So anyway, I think I got quite a few stars incorporated into my one small card and I really like how it turned out!
