A Star is Born

Good morning to all my lovely friends and followers I hope that you have all had a fab weekend and  enjoyed lots of nice things I do wish summer would come back though its quite chilly at the moment in my part of the world. Anyway today I'm showing you a card I've made with another of the digi stamps I won in the All Dressed Up Stamps Facebook Challenge a few weeks ago I got three stamps and this is the second. I posted my first image Flower Fairy a couple of weeks ago so still one more to come . This image is called A Star is Born and I think its just delightful and says it all about Christmas. See what you think .

A Close Up of The Stamp

Card Recipe

6x6 Blank Card
Stamp is A Star is Born from All Dressed Up Stamps and  painted with Derwent Inktense Pencils some Glamour Dust on the stars .
Papers are Dark purple from a Kaisercraft pad I think it was free in a magazine
The patterned paper and the border strip are from a Crafty Individuals Christmas Pad 2 I've had ages. (I've just checked and sadly its no longer on the web page such a shame the vintage images are lovely.)
Wooden Angel is from Hobby Craft a couple of years ago 
Wooden star buttons from Whitby Crafts
Sparkle stars are from my stash
Sentiment stamp is Kaisercraft Magic of Christmas set 
Green hessian trim was from a pound stall at the GNPE 
Spellbinder square die

I hope you are all impressed and have noticed NO Flowers, NO Lace, NO Ribbon and NO pearls on this just to reassure you all I'm feeling perfectly well  !!

As my title is A Star is Born I couldn't finish without a new photo of Miles taken on the 18th July.

Such cuteness and not just the card!! Wonderful card Carole. It was quite a shock not seeing lace, ribbon or pearls that I had to sit down to recover, lol!
Miles is such a beautiful little boy. He looks to content there and has a little smile on his face, awwww. Are you his Nana, Grandma or something else?
Have a great week. Debra x
