Merry Monday #108

I was thrilled to recently find out that a card I made for a 
Merry Monday challenge won!! You can view the card here.
I am honored to have been asked to be a guest designer for this week.
Thank you for the opportunity!

This week's challenge is to use stars on your Christmas project.

I was eager to play along with this challenge!

Stars automatically make me think of a country and rustic Christmas. 
I don't have much in the way of star stamps so I opted
to use my big shot and some variegated cardboard to make the stars. 
After I sponged the edges, the rest of the card just fell in to place.

I hope this and all the other cards inspire you to create one of your 
own for this challenge.

Check out all the cards at the 

card stock: naturals ivory, cherry cobbler
stamp set: magical season
ink: crumb cake, cherry cobbler, always artichoke
big shot: stars #2, decorative dots EF
cardboard, dimensionals

Happy Stamping!
and thanks so much for visiting!!
