Wish upon a star ...

My first magic color slider card, dies from Father Christmas ok ok Lawn Fawn. Now my Stazon was very old so I couldn't get a clear image on the front of the acetate but I do have another on my craft table and a new ink pad so the next one will be better.  Also I  have a new stamping platform also from Father Christmas and I cannot believe how I have managed without one for so long, highly recommended.

I have used more Lawn Fawn this time the Upon a Star stamp set including the stars which I have heat embossed in silver & the sentiments.  Stitched hillside cut on my Silhouette, papers from Nitwit Collections. The background has been created using TH distress oxides, had these a wee while, love them.  So matted on silver mirri and hand stitched (goes without saying) and coloured with Promarkers.  A few sparkles to finish.
