Wish upon a star

Hi Everybody,

I'm back with my first Christmas card of this year. I know it feels like we have ages until Christmas but it's just a little over twenty weeks, so if you create about one card a week like I do (admitted this past week it's been more) then to have a couple to send to your closest friends and family it's just about time you get started :).
The stamp that I used is from Sugar Nellie and she's called Wish Upon a Star. I've had it for ages but never used it and figured it was about time I inked her up. I was kind of surprised to find out that Funky Kits (the shop that sells Sugar Nellie stamps) no longer has this stamp in rubber. They do sell it in digi though and you'll find it HERE. I've used lots of yummie goodies on my card, perhaps a bit to much for your taste, normally my cards are calmer but I kind of like it this way for this time :).
A close up of the Wish Upon a Star image, as always colored with Copic Markers and 3D paper pieced.
And a close up of the pretty Wild Orchid Crafts flowers that I received just a day or two ago. I LOVE the new Magnolia's and Apple Blossoms so HAD to use them.
And the little pieces this image was made of.

Hope you like my first Christmas card of the year even though temperatures outside probably don't give you any Christmas fibes yet :). See you back soon!
