Jennifer Styles challenged us to make a card using at least five colours of ink (but not black or white) for the One Layer Wednesday Challenge. I had recently bought some multi-coloured glitter because it reminded me of the tinsel we used to have on our tree back in England when I was a child so I built the card around that glitter.
I laid down a strip of Sookwang tape and sprinkled the glitter on it and then stamped four stars in different colours (the colour on the far right is gold - it was such a dull day when I photographed it that it comes out a dull colour) and the sentiment in silver, and embossed them all with a sparkling transparent ep. Because I was thinking of my childhood in England, I used the English Christmas greeting of "Happy Christmas" instead of the North American "Merry Christmas".
I'm also putting the card in SCS's Christmas Card Challenge.

I love the story that went along with your card. I found out a bit about you, tinsel in the UK, and "Happy Christmas." This card is great. Put yourself into your cards...say it however you want. We will know what you mean, don't worry!
