Blue Christmas





I've made this card twice before but had forgotten just how long it took to fold the stars. This colour combination fits in with a couple of challenges, and the inspiration came from Case-ing Christmas the star, 52CCT use punches/dies and  Tis' the Season and Christmas at Sweet Stampin blues.

I love the wintry blues with the silver accents! Your wreath is fabulous! I don't know that I've have the patience for making one like that. Thanks so much for joining in our challenge this week at 52CCT - we enjoy seeing what you create each week! :)
