Seeing Stars

It seems like stars are a popular image for Christmas this year.

That's OK with me.  I like stars!


This card was super quick and easy.

I picked out some snippets and embossed one and scored the narrower one.
Edited to add:  I totally forgot to link to 
Thanks, Sue, for scouting me out!

Punched out some stars from white snippets.

Attached thread to the back of the stars and hung them.

Added a bit of sparkle.

Stamped a sentiment. (Always the tricky part.)

And it was done.

Oh how clever Bonnie - I adore the stars 'a dangling there' - and did giggle that Sue chased you into the Playground :) It's funny, I'm catching up on commenting here and you're about the third person who's been grabbed by the plaits by another Playmate!

Hugs
