Sketch 37: STARS!


Merry Christmas Eve, everyone! I believe that this day is my favorite... Tomorrow there will be the craziness of rushing around to see family and have Christmas dinner ready, which we all know has its ups AND downs! There will be the fun (and chaos!) of ripping through presents. But today? Today always FEELS so peaceful. The kids and I will be baking Christmas cookies for Santa. We will attend tonight's Christmas Eve candlelight service at church (in the area? Candlewyck Baptist at 7pm...). And after that, we will enjoy the darkness pierced by Christmas lights...and even our own Christmas tree. Ahh.... Love Christmas Eve.

In addition to the beauty of today, Limelight has a Sketch and Product Challenge for you! Perhaps you'll have a few minutes to complete it today, or perhaps after you've received some new stamping goodies as Christmas gifts?? ;) We are focusing on STARS, so if you are in a Christmas mood, maybe use a few Christmas trees with stars on the top. Star stamps, patterned paper, punches, or ANYTHING goes for this challenge. :) Don't have stars? Don't fret....play along anyway!

My card uses a Rich Razzleberry textured base (SU). The card measures 6" x 4.25". I layered on a rectangle piece of the same paper for the main star image. I punched three stars using the SU Star Punch, then layered a sheet of Eskimo Kisses paper behind the stars. (PSST! Eskimo Kisses is on SALE right now! BIG TIME! Perfect for scrapping those Christmas memories!!) I accented each point on the stars with Island Lagoon rhinestones, and I edged the entire layer in Ultrafine Silver Glitter from Stampendous. Because stars have to shine brightly, right?? :) For the sentiment, I used PTI's Holiday Button Bits stamp set using Silver ColorBox ink, and I added a couple more rhinestones.
