Starry Joy

Hi friends! The results of my rigorous {grin} Black Friday online shopping spree have started arriving and so I just had to squeeze in a little time to play with some of it! This card uses the new Holiday Toppers and Star Rosette CutUps from The Cat's Pajamas. Ever since a friend pointed out this North Pole paper from the Sleigh Ride collection, I've had it in my head to make a card using it and the Joy to the World Plain Jane. I wanted the sentiment to look a bit like a globe, so I stamped it directly on the map paper, inked the edges with some black soot ink and matted on a black Nestabilities circle. The rosette is made from the same paper, just using the reverse side, which is a red and white stripe. I decided to make a tent style card, so I could play with that fun star topper, then just alternated the paper for the stars and finished with some wide black ribbon and a rhinestone star.

 Hope you're having a fabulous start to your December!  Thanks so much for stopping by!
