Wishing you the peace and joy of Christmas

Hello there! I'm writing this entry during my lunch break at work as I created my entry for the AnnaBelle Stamps' current challenge - Say It With...Embellished Corners late last night and felt so sleepy after that I had to go straight to bed!
Embellishing the corners is a tricky one because I'm a clean and simple kinda gal, but I think my card below manages to fit the challenge and be CAS at the same time:

Wishing you peace (1)

I received my first order of AnnaBelle Stamps earlier this week (I ordered so much stuff, I couldn't help it, I love the designs - especially the backgrounds) and had to play straightaway. I'll have some more cards to share in the coming days that I created with the stamps I ordered.

I stamped the large sentiment from the 'Christmas Wish' set in Onyx Black Versafine ink on Canson Vivaldi cardstock.

Wishing you peace (2)

I stamped the star from the sentiment again with Gold Versacolor ink but it wasn't sparkly enough so I rubbed on some gold Pearlex powder and set it with Matte Fixative spray. Cut out the star and fixed it onto the card with a tiny foam dot.
The corners were pierced and sewn by hand with gold embroidery floss.

Thanks for taking a look! I suppose I'd better get back to work. :(
Have a good one!
