Less is More Week 39 Lucky Dip - Stars


This weeks challenge for the Limettes is inspired by the guest designer Vicky and because she is such a star that is the theme this week!
I didn't think I had anything suitable but came across a set of stamps that came free with a magazine that I hadn't really looked at.
I stamped the tree with versamark and embossed with gold EP. I stamped an extra star and popped it up with a foam dot and  matted onto kraft cardstock.
The strip across the centre is stamped with gold ink and a gold dot added to the centre of each star. The tree is raised on foam strips onto a square card base.


Thanks for visiting and i love to read any comments you leave and visit you too:)
