Merry Be Your Christmas

     Welcome back!  It's week 2 of our sketch challenge at Shining the Light with Our Daily Bread Designs.
 Our Daily Bread Designs, Sparkling Stars dies, His Birth, Winter Collection 2014, designer Linda Carson


     My card starts with the Winter Collection 2014 papers.  The sentiment and stars are from His Birth set.  The pattern in the stars matches the pattern in the papers.  The stars were cut using Sparkling Stars dies.
     I wish the picture showed all of the sparkle from gold embossing on the stars to golden thread and golden stitches.  Even the paper with the sentiment sparkles.  Lastly the sparkle on the golden dots.
     You'll want to visit the rest of the Challenge Team for more inspiration on this challenge:
