Star of Wonder

Here is a card that I made for the Four Seasons challenge over at the Lili of the Valley Challenge Blog.

The pretty patterned papers are from Memory Box's Mistletoe collection. I love this beautiful holiday collection.

I used the adorable Star of Wonder from Lili of the Valley Stamps for my card. She is so cute! I am happy to start my holiday cards early, too. =)

I dyed my seam binding in fired brick this time. The rich red fit the red in the paper perfectly. The sentiment is from Close To My Heart. I added some Diamond Stickles on the star and the ornament on the tree. The snow is smeared with some Star Dust Stickles.

That's all I have for now. Hope you have wonderful day!
