Bright & Beautiful Christmas Card

I'm late getting this posted today.  It was an insanely crazy day, as I had two classes for kids today, plus we put in new kitchen counter tops.  That was not great planning.  My kitchen looks like it exploded into my dining room, and there were kids bouncing off my basement walls.  Whew!  I'm glad it's over and I can just sit and veg for the rest of the night.

This gold star card is a little bit involved.  It's not hard, but there are a lot of steps, and trying to perfectly place the largest star from the Bright & Beautiful stamp set is a little tricky because of the giant wood block it's mounted on.

Every star on this card is embossed with gold embossing powder, and I love the way it looks.  The middle layer of the focal star is cut from gold glimmer paper.  There is so much sparkle and shine on this card, and even though I don't normally love gold, I love this card.
