Merry Monday # 280 With Kelly as our Host

Hi friends!  Welcome to another Merry Monday Christmas card Challenge!
Today Kelly is our host and she has a wonderful photo inspiration for you!
I was drawn to the I used a new to me die that my BFF gave me for Christmas called Star Frame Die from Avery comes with three sizes of stars too.  I cut the stars out of some glitter paper and the frame out of glitter and the silver Lux PTI paper.
First I used some brushos for the background and framed it in white and put it on an indigo blue card stock.  I used a sentiment from Penny Black called Holy Night and embossed it with HA silver ep.
I hope you will be able to play along with us and check out the rest of the design teams cards for their interpretation of this wonderful photo.
I will see you in the gallery!

Heart Hugs, friends!
