Shining in the East, beyond them far

Sharing the second Christmas card I’ve made today as the rain keeps tumbling down outside, this one feature some dies from Noor! Design and Clearly Besotted.

I’ve based my card on the current sketch at CAS(E) This Sketch.  Stars take the place of the cloud thanks to the current theme at Happy Little Stampers Christmas.  The largest star is actually a small shaker element, I’m loving making up little shakers to add a bit of interest to my CAS cards.

The colour scheme comes from Sparkles Christmas where they want to see projects that use silver or gold.  Using the metallic cardstocks makes for a lovely elegant card with just a touch of extra sparkle from the bitty gems, which replace the raindrops from the sketch.
