Shower of Stars

Good morning friends!  I hope your last work day of the week is off to a great start.  I'm sure it will be a busy weekend for everyone now that we are into the Christmas season.  This week at Fairy Fun Friday our challenge to you is "Use a Star".  That's a perfect theme for a Christmas card which I have made using one of the adorable Christmas Fairies from the Prairie Fairy (colored with Copics).  This one is called Holly Fairy and she comes with a poinsettia and sentiments.  My sentiment is from another Prairie Fairy Set called Candy Cane Fairy.  Check out all the wonderful seasonal digital images in the Prairie Fairy's store.  

I randomly stamped snowflakes using white craft ink on kraft card stock and paired it up with Cherry Cobbler.  A large snowflake "doily" was created by cutting five smaller snowflakes and adhering them to the back of a scaloped circle.  The stars were cut with a Sizzix die and embossed with Judi-Kins Egyptian Gold embossing powder.  I applied Antique Linen distress stickles to the felt star and the metal sentiment holder is from the Vanilla Hodgepodge Hardware from SU.  The distress stickles were also used on the fairy's wings.  

There you have it - a very simple card for this lovely challenge.  Can't wait to see what you will make using stars.  Stop by and visit us at Fairy Fun Friday.  Thanks for stopping and for your comments.  Have a great day!


Blessings & hugs,
