Starry Santa


Today I am sharing a recycled star from a birthday decoration.  The Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge is stars and the City Crafter Blog Challenge is Santa Claus is coming to town. The ColourQ colors worked beautifully too!  I combined the challenges to create a vintage star decoration.

The background paper is a combination of Stella and October Afternoon paper for the layers of the star. Then a rim of Melissa Frances Crushed Glitter around the edges.  The edge of the circle is made from crepe paper glimmer misted with Patina blue. 

The center of the circle is stamped using Artistic Outpost - Route 66 and Snowy Woods.  A little distressing, crushed glass and embellishments and done.

Here are the colors:


Hope you have a wonderful Tuesday!
