The Stars are Brightly Shining

Happy Friday, blog friends!!  We have made it to the weekend....yay!!  Do you have any fun plans?  We are dog sitting for the neighbors, so I will be hanging out at home mostly.  Hopefully will get a lot of crafty time in!!

Before I get to my card, I wanted to share that I have a lot of items available on my For Sale tab.  Check it out & see if there is anything you just can't live without for a really great price!! :)

I've got a really gold & elaborate Christmas card to share with you this evening.  But hey, if you can't get elaborate about the birth of Christ...then what CAN you get elaborate about?! :)  I think it turned out really pretty.  Check it out!
 I layered & layered until my heart's content, & used up some older product in my stash as well!  The background paper is from the Dear Lizzy "Lucky Charm" 6x6 paper pad, & it says "Love you to the stars and back" over & over again.  It just seemed fitting for the theme & sentiment of this card. :)

I created this for pretty much every Verve related challenge out there right now...there are lots of fun ones!!  I used the Viva la Verve November sketch #2 as the starting off point for my design.  I also created it for the "Naturally Navy" Verve November 2014 Inspiration challenge, and the "Vellum Visions" November Diva dare.  And last but not least, I couldn't resist adding some stars for this week's Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, "We're Seeing Stars".

**The flowers are not linked, because I do not know their names.  They are Prima Marketing brand, but are well over a year old.  Sorry about that!  If you want to recreate this card & don't have the same can easily substitute them!**

I hope that you've enjoyed my card tonight!  As always, if you have any questions or anything....leave it in the comments & I will reply back. :)  I recently made some changes to how I use Facebook, and have pared my friends list down to just family & very close friends.  Would you like to keep up with me on Facebook?  All you have to do is like my Lea Lawson Creates facebook page.  I add blog links & photos to it...and will be doing a TON more with it in 2015.  Be sure to join me before all the fun gets going!!  You can also add yourself as a follower to my blog in the right sidebar as another way to keep up with my posts.

Have a wonderful start of your weekend!

Until later,
