O holy night!

I haven't been around as much lately due to various illnesses doing the rounds just now. I have 2 little ones off school today and one has been off all this week! I haven't made a card at all since friday! Luckily, I had this one I made last week to show and it fit into one of the challenges for this week too!
A square card for the Arty Girlz challenge this week! I took this idea from Rose Ann's beautiful starburst card here. The instructions for the original starburst card by Donna Moore are here.
The shape of mine is obviously different as I didn't have the tag punch that Rose Ann used so I used the Sizzix circle frame instead. I have a added staged photos underneath so you get the idea.

Supplies: Cream cardstock, blue vellum, Basic Grey Figgy Pudding 'silent night' paper, Rub-on by Provocraft, Sizzix Circle tag die, charm I have had a while but I think it is Karen Foster.


Some photos to show how the flower/star is made up.
