LOTV Christmas Star

Hey there! I'm back with a card featuring the sweet Lili of the Valley Christmas Star!  I think I had better get a move on with the Christmas cards since I don't have a one! haha!  Most of them have either been sold or shipped off to LOTV.  I'm not complaining, I just probably should start making some more pretty soon.

I totally LOVE this gorgeous paper pad that Laila created called Frosty Christmas. It is such a nice shade of blue.

I wanted to pair it with a different color besides white or kraft, so I went with a deep plum color.  I colored her with distress inks and added all sorts of fun blingy additions.   There is stickles on the snow, Pearl Pen for the snow flakes, Fun Flock for her coat trim.  I even sprited Pearl Glimmer Mist and a touch of acrylic paint to the flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. 

Here's my artsy view again.  You can see the little image how cute she is.

The die cut is a Memory Box die.  I had to cut it twice to enlarge it.  The circle was pretty small, but this was real easy to make it larger.

Wow! Two cards in a row.  What am I like on a roll or something? haha! 

Thank you for stopping by today! I sure do appreciate you all!

Big hugs, Dena
