CHNC challenge 29: seeing stars

It's time for a new challenge on my CHNC challenge blog - it doesn't seem possible, but we are up to challenge 29 already - you can see the details here - it would be lovely if you could join in. This week I would like you to include stars on your card - well, at least one star!

For my card I used Papermania Classic Christmas papers with a shaped card blank. I like the way the cut away edge reveals a bit of the underneath, so I thought it was worth decorating the inside so that a bit peeped through.

I layered the stitched ribbon on to a piece of the foiled paper and wrapped around the inside, hiding the join with a star cut from the main paper I used on the front and adding a cut out star on the front too.


I'm entering this into the following challenges:

Christmas inspirations 29: free Christmas project
Bah! humbug 28: shapes - shaped cards
Celebrate the occasion 22: Christmas (shaped card)
Digistamps4joy 23: Christmas in July
Fun at fairy knoll: Christmas in July
Simply create 48: Christmas time
2 sisters 48: Christmas in July
CES 45: Christmas
Catch the bug: Christmas in July
Jellypark friends 1: Christmas in July
Charisma cardz 28: it's in the stars
Pixie cottage 78: wrap it in ribbon
Crafty sentiments: use stitching
DYSU 28: sew: faux or real
Rainbow lady 161: a stitch in time
Creative inspirations 120: no flowers allowed
