Starlight

......... for we haue seene his Starre in the east, and are come to worship him.
The Gospel According to S. Matthew 2:2
The Holy Bible Authorized Version 1611

As I was making this card I kept thinking of the Star of Bethlehem & the Christmas story of Christ's birth.

The last of my Christmas cards - safely delivered this morning. I used the same sparkly Winter Wonderland Embossing Powder that I did here but this time I lost count of how many photos I took in attempting to show its sparkle. The turkey is defrosting but I have presents to wrap & a major catching up of blogland.

With Greetings of the Season
Best Wishes for 2012

Paula the elevated embossed star is perfectly coordinated by the ribbon with the glittery edge. I love the wonderful way the star points draw your eye up and down and side to side. The star-gemmed background is fabulous as well.
