Allsorts Challenge 19, 'Stars'

Well I decided that as it's Sepember, and the challenge on Allsorts is for cards with 'Stars' I had better get on with some more Christmas cards and here's the one that I made. The stars are in the night sky.

I used:
The carol singer stamp from the Variety sheet from I Brake For Stamps
I piece of Night Sky Glitter Card
I base card 10.5 cm x 15cm when folded
1 piece of navy blue saddle stitch ribbon
1 tag
Oval shape
3d foam pads
What I did:
I cut a piece of the night time glitter card to cover the top half of the card while still leaving a small border around the top. Stick to the base card.
Stamp the image onto the oval card and colour with shades of blue, yellow and a little red and brown.
Tie a knot in the ribbon and adhere it over the join between the glitter card and the base card.
Write a nessage on the tag and stick it to the card along with the image.
Now that's a fairly quick card.

Love Larry for a birthday card

I've just made this card for the Allsorts challenge 17, which, this week, is for something for the boys card. I admit that is not your conventional card but I've never let that bother me. He's made using the Love Larry stamp from 'I Brake for Stamps' which can be seen here.

Isn't he a total hoot.
