Less Is More ,,,,,

Hi all :-) I hope you are all fit and well and keeping warm :-)

I had this card base ready with the star border  cut out since before Christmas and just waiting for something to be done with it and when I saw the fab sketch on the Less Is More Challenge I thought this would work !! 

I used a Simon Says Stamp Star Border Die and then popped some Bazzill Nightmist card on the inside. I used the same navy card and a scrap of white to cut stars using a Sizzix Star Die. I then used a Xyron machine to add glue to the white star and then sprinkled with Glitter Ritz Opaque White Glitter ,, LOVE this stuff ,,when you burnish it it really sparkles and no glitter falls off !  I added a Doodlebug Boy Boutique button and some silver twine to finish and the sentiment is from a Hero Arts ’Holiday Sayings’ clear set.

Thanks for looking :-) I appreciate your comments so please leave me one and I will try to pop back to see you too :-)

I coloured with Copics and added Star Dust Stickles here and there. The papers are from a Basic Grey pack ,, I think Sugar Rush but not sure, I used a Prima flower, a BG Button and some Hemptique twine. The cloud was cut using the die from a Simon Says Stamp ‘Where the Heart Is’ die set
