Star of Wonder

I made this card this evening using my goodies that I bought from the NEC Craft Show yesterday (Saturday), entering it into the following challenges:

Craft Mad and Loving It - follow sketchie with a theme of 'Fake It'.
One Stitch at a Time - theme is Winter Wonderland.
Paper Sundaes - theme is 'Let It Snow'.
Crafty Calendar Challenge - theme is 'Winter'.
ABC Christmas Challenge - theme is 'W for Winter Wonderland'.
Wild Orchid Challenge - theme is 'A Classic Christmas - would like to see Greens, Reds and maybe Golds).
Allsorts Challenge - theme is 'Twas the Night Before Christmas'.

Image is called 'Star of Wonder' by Lily of the Valley, coloured with Promarkers and touched up with a Spica Glitter Pen and distressed around the edge with Tim Holtz Peeled Paint Distressing Ink. Pinflair Ice Diamond has been added around her feet to create a snowy effect and Glossy Accents has been applied to the star.

Backing papers are from Bo Bunny. The holly paper is called 'St Nic Noel' and the spotted paper is called 'St Nic Sleigh'.

The sentiment is a Cuddly Buddly Christmas Ticket Rubber Stamp inked using Tim Holtz Peeled Paint Distressing Ink.

The flowers, ribbon, pearls, charm and crocheted buttons are from my stash.
