The Card Concept #25

Hi friends!
It is time for another fabulous challenge at The Card Concept!
This is our last challenge for 2014!  We will be back on Jan. 7th, 2015 with a brand new challenge and a new wild card team!

This week's challenge is a color and inspiration challenge.
(Silent Night Neutrals)

I was inspired by the star shaped cookies on the tray and that is where I went with my card.  I stamped the star from Bright and Beautiful by SU! onto Baked Brown Sugar, used the matching framelit to cut it out.  Layered the next size star in white on top to mimic the cookies.  To tie in the vanilla, I added a strip of vanilla DSP to the bottom of my card along with a strip of silver glimmer paper.  I stamped the sentiment from Mama Elephant onto the DSP using Baked Brown Sugar ink.  A big rhinestone in the center of the star finishes this card off.

Stop over to the Card Concept blog to see what the other girls have created in all of the different styles.  I just love this challenge just for this reason!  It's great to see all the different takes on one inspiration photo.

Thanks so much for stopping in!  I hope you get the chance to play along too!
