Don't Faint!

Wow! Two posts this week! I'm seriously behind with the last few Bah! Humbug! Challenges and I have cards in my head for all of them!!

At least I've made it this week though. This week's challenge is stars and I decided to go for a CAS look. I've added an L shaped border down the left hand side and along the bottom of embossed stars from a papermania christmas borders collection - these embossing folders are seriously good value. Other than that, I've used the pre-coloured poinsettia from Crafty Ann's - the poinsettia is also available as a normal digi stamp but for speed, I've opted for the pre-coloured one and added a second layer of the red bracts for a bit more dimension. The greeting tag is a stamp I got free on a magazine last year and stamped with warm red chalk ink - which is a deeper colour in real life than the photo makes it look.

My card is for quite a few other challenges too:
