Getting Closer....

It is getting closer and closer to the 25th...And while that's great and I love it, it is not so great for my Christmas Card stash. It is dwindling rapidly as I mail more of them and I am sure I will need more than I have currently. So less of chit-chatting on this is going to be a quick one.
I started with this sketch at the Sweet Stop Challenge Blog

Picked up the color combo from the CR84FN color challenge blog

And with Magnolia Tilda, this is what I came up with


I have been making a lot of "Tilda" cards recently. Got to remedy that soon.
The background paper is Recollections Union Square paper stack and the grey colored paper is g.c.d. studio's Antiquities collection. The sentiment is Justrite and the star is made using Spellbinder die and then covered in glossy accents.
The following picture is probably a truer representation of the paper colors.


The inside is lined with grey colored paper from Recollections. The Stamped image is Justrite and so is the sentiment.

 A coordinating Spellbinder die provides space for writing sentiments
