Card Concept #45

Hello my stampy friends!
Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday with your family and friends!
My son came home, so it was great having him here to spoil for a few days!

Today starts our last Inspiration Challenge here at The Card Concept before the Christmas holidays! Then we will be taking a break till first of January.

I just love, love, love this inspiration photo!

It made me think of a cold, crisp winter night sky. 
Stars just seem to really shine brightly on a cold winter night. Then add some snowflakes....beautiful!

My card was very simple to make. I used the Snowy Backdrop die  (Lawn Fawn) and dark blue paper for the sky. I adhered it to a white card base. I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment from Snowy Backdrops(Lawn Fawn) in navy onto vellum. The big snowflake- MFT Pierced Snowflake die-was cut with some white glitter paper. I wanted a little more sparkle, so I added some Tim Holtz stars. Very simple, but classy and elegant IRL!

I really hope you will join us here at the last Card Concept Challenge for 2015!
Y'all always blow my socks off!!!

And please go visit my team mates
