A Krafty, Starry Christmas

Happy Wednesday bloggers!  I hope all is well with everyone.  Here in the NE, it is still too cooooolllllldddddd for my liking, but that is life in PA, and I wouldn't change it!  This post is not about the weather though:
I made this card last night to take part in a few challenges, and more importantly, to build up my Christmas card stash!  This is card #3 for the year.
The digital image is one of the Emma's from Fred, She Said, found here.  I just love this set of pre-colored digis!  They are so easy to use for "coloring challenged" people like myself!  I just had to root through my cardstock and designer paper collections to find the best matches, and off I went!  I grabbed some of the burlap strings still laying on my desk, and wrapped 3 around the bottom of my panel, and then tied another one in a bow where they intersected.  The sentiment piece was die cut with Spellbinder's ovals and big scalloped ovals.  I found 3 little stars that were left overs from a Silhouette cut file, distressed and Stickled them, and voila, done!
The challenges I am entering are:
Winter Wonderland:  Krafty Creations
Merry Monday #147:  Stars
Crafty Calendar:  Anything Goes
I hope to keep this Christmas card-making train chugging along and be back soon with another post...until then,
Take care, and thanks for looking!

She is holding her book of carols, but she would look sweet with her hands covered in a white furry muff, too!! (Thank you for your recent visit!) Hugs, Darnell
