A Christmas Star

Hello to you all and a special hello to my new followers, thanks for dropping by on this cold and windy day. I've got the dreaded flu germs and haven't felt like doing much for the past few days but I have managed to put together a christmas card today.

I've used another cute Mo Manning image coloured with Promarkers and I decoupaged the little cherub. I added some sparkle with Sakura Gelly Roll Stardust pen on the wings and star but it hasn't shown up on the photo. Then I layered the image on some silver mirri card and then on to a Marianne Creatable LR0180 die. The background paper is from Bearly Mine Design and I used the same paper mounted on white card for the border and then wrapped a piece of white ribbon round it. I finished it off with a sentiment and silver gems from my stash.

This is the sketch I followed

I shall enter this in the following challenges
I Love Promarkers challenge 'Christmas is Coming'

Mo's Digital challenge 'Cute and Cuddly'
