Merry Monday #83 - Christmas Stars and Hearts

Hi Stamping Friends,
It's Monday again and that means it's time for another Merry Monday Challenge and we are to use Chocolate, Red, Stripes and Hearts or Stars.  I love the inspiration photo that Lesley chose this week but I found it difficult to come up with a card I really liked and ended up making two very different cards. I embossed and shaped the Extra Large Stars and embossed the Whisper White mat.  The Glimmer card Stars were coloured with a Copic Pen and mounted on Dimensionals for some added bling.
