One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

Festive Friday Challenge # 18 ~ A STAR Element

The challenge is to include a star element on the card.  I can't believe I had another Hero Arts stamp that had not seen the words of fellow blogger Darnell this is a NBUS stamp (again, her words:  "Never Before Used Schtuff"!!  She is so mighty clever with her words). 
I inked up the rubber stamp with royal velvet ink and stamped it on Harvest gold paper.  I took a sentiment from Nativity Additions and stamped it off once, then stamped it to make my background.
I used the same sentiment inside the card and stamped the star in the corners (I used the same star on the envelope...3 times, in the bottom left corner)

Stamps:  HA: Starry Night,  PTI: Nativity Additions
paper:  PTI royal velvet, harvest gold, white
ink:  royal velvet, harvest gold, memento black

Thank you so much for taking a look!  I hope you have a glorious Sunday.  We are celebrating my grandson's 14 birthday and also an Open House as his family moved into a new home for with lots of rooms for the three kiddos.
Heart Hugs, friends!

  4. Colleen, that is one beauty of a background! Used the same stamp, and can't wait to try it your way! Always love to see what you do with and to a card challenge! This is no exception. Love the purple on yellow. Looks like a deep night sky!
