LSC250 Easy Peasy-- Just How I Like 'Em




This card is for today's Limited Supplies Challenge, which was to use a star on our card. I used one of the branches from the 'All That Glitters' stamp set by Flourishes, stamped in two shades of green to create the wreath. I hand cut the holly leaves (I need a punch!) and sponged them in the same green colors as the leaves. The holly berries are Basic Grey adhesive pearls that started out green, but I colored with a red Copic. My star is from my kids' craft stash... it's a button!  The finished size is 4.25 x 4.25" 
ETA:  To get them all in a perfect circle, I punched a 2" circle out of scrap paper, and stamped around it with my first layer.  Oh how I wish I could stamp that perfectly on my own-LOL!

Thanks for looking!! Have a great day!
