52 {C}CT March Theme Challenge

Welcome to another 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown challenge, my friends. It's the third challenge this month and our lovely hostess, Patricia, has a fun Theme challenge for you: Stars. Does it get more Christmassy than that?!

Admittedly, I got a little carried away with all the stars. It is Christmas, after all!





For the background I embossed dark blue CS with the Swiss Dots
folder. And then I went to town with the gold stars. The greeting is
from Chocolate Baroque's Peace On Earth set, stamped with
Memento Paris Dusk on SB's Ribbon Label die cut.

I coloured this image from CB's Peace On Earth set with
Caran d'Ache Prismalo Watercolor Pencils. 

On the inside I used another sentiment from the Peace On Earth set.

Sending my little star(s) to these challenges:

CHNC #168: Going Green... a little or a lot - just a little on the leaves
CHNC Extra for March: AG Christmas
Make It Monday #182 FINAL: AG
Christmas Stampin' All Year Long #2: Sparkle & Shine
Sister Act Card #48: AG Cards Only
Stampin' For The Weekend: AG
Completely Christmas #3: AG Christmas

Now it's your turn to create a festive card using this week's Theme - Stars. In order to be considered for Top Honour and Honourable Mentions your card must follow this week's challenge theme and you must link it to the 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown Challenge Blog by 6pm GMT / 1pm EST on Friday, 21 March. And here's the most important rule: Have Fun!

Thanks for stopping by today, my friends and enjoy the weekend!

Beijinhos!
