Christmas Card Club Challenge #2 North Star / Any Stars

Hi Crafters,

Our second Christmas challenge of the year is underway at the Christmas Card Club and Maureen has chosen 
North Star / Stars

Creative Expressions Dies - Christmas Scene & Swirling Stars
Crafters Companion Embossing Folder - Reindeer Forest & Corner Dies
Spellbinders Alphabet Dies
Mirri Card


I had a lot of trouble with glare from the mirri card on this one, if I angled the card to stop the glare from the silver frame then I had a shine on the stars and vice-versa, so this was the best I could get.


Challenges I'd like to enter:
Crafty Creations - #333 ATG
C.R.A.F.T. Challenge - #399 Christmas
Moving Along With The Times - #37 Swirls / Curls
Brown Sugar - #234 ATG
Creative Fingers - #123 ATG
CHNC Every Saturday - #317 ATG Christmas
CHNC Challenge Extra - January Challenge


I hope you have a wonderful Sunday and I will see you again soon,

So very elegant & classy, with this fab SW die set. Love how you've brought the star theme into the design, and your mirror card showed up superbly. It gleams...and is so pretty with this shade of rich red. TFS & Hugs (Keep meaning to say I like your new photo too).
