Twinkle, twinkle


This may not look much like a Christmas card, but it is!  It's an Alternative Christmas card.  I started with the little star stamp from Stampotique that came free with an issue of Craft Stamper.  I stamped it onto Kraft cardstock (sorry for the bad picture) using ColorBox Chalk ink in Amber Clay.  I added the sentiment (Penny Black) in Rouge.  Then I added a strip of mustard card that I cut with a Martha Stewart punch (embossed zig zag) and some ribbon to the top, and matted it onto pink card.  I then matted it onto mustard card that had been stamped with the star stamp using Rough ink, and then onto a cream card blank.  Lastly I stamped the star onto pink card using Warm Red, adding Crystal Stickers.
I'd like to enter this in the following challenges:
Stampotique Designs - Non Traditional Christmas
Simons Says Stamp and Show - Show some stars
Cupcake Challenge - Colouring on Kraft
