Wish Upon a Star

Well I've managed to grab five minutes from my renovating to "blog" a card I made last week.
I used the gorgeous Star Bear from Sassy Cheryls.  I just LOVE this image!  I printed it on linen card, as I wanted to keep a "textured" look to the bear, which I coloured with Prismacolor pencils.... it was a bit hard to get even coverage but worth it as he has a distinct fabric look.
I used the sketch from the 2 Sisters Challenge, rotated 90 degrees.  I hope I can get this post done in time to enter (I just fell asleep while typing, for about 40 minutes!) 
I've used papers from Kaisercrafts December 25th Collection, red card from my stash for the mat which was cut using Nestabilities Fleur De Lis Rectangles dies, and gold card also from my stash.  Whimsy Inspirations Challenge is to use Traditional Christmas Colours, so I'm entering there, That Craft Place is to Use Red, so entering there too.
The star trim under the (computer generated) sentiment is also from my stash, as is the burgundy and gold  flower/star on the corner.  By the Cute and Girly has Twinkle Twinkle Little Star as their challenge theme, and My Mums Craft Shop has Inspired by a song - can you guess which song inspired this? lol, so I'm entering those too.
The inside of the card is finished very simply with more papers from the December 25th Collection, the patterned border is in fact one of the preprinted ones from the pad, the mats were cut freehand.
Crafty Creations has Christmas is Coming for their challenge and Crafts 4 Eternity has Midnight Magic (bedtime theme, moon, stars etc... I've used stars)  so I'll be entering there too.
That's it for today's card.  I've a very busy day tomorrow (well later today now as it's gone midnight, lol); it's my son's birthday and as well as decorating his cake and going out for his birthday dinner (which means picking up my folks ahead of time), we are finishing removal of our kitchen... we have taken out all the cupboards, knocked down the brick wall that was the "backing" for our breakfast bar and have taken up some of the floor tiles (we have to get up enough for the new kitchen "footprint".  We did that this afternoon, but I spent HOURS emptying cupboards before that... I've decided we have way too much "STUFF"!! and we'll NEVER move from here, lol.
I'll post some reno pictures soon, and I'll be back on Sunday with a card I've made (which I really like!) for the next Here Come The Boys challenge, until then Happy Crafting, Donna

This is gorgeous Donna. I love the cute bear and your colouring on the linen card looks so effective. The paper are gorgeous too.
It sounds like you are really busy, no wonder you are so tired!
Take care

What a lovely card with great design. I like the colors you have used and that image is so cute. Also love the CAS style design like Plastic cards which make the card POP. Thanks for sharing.

Beautiful card! The prismas on that linen card give that adorable bear a real furry look. Beautiful papers and decorations.
