Christmas cards all year round challenge

Hi everybody,

I have been so MIA and I appologize for that. 
 Couple reasons.  I am selling my home and downsizing.  I will be moving into my little house in the next couple months and am busy purging stuff and slowly moving things I want to keep.
Second reason is that as much as I plan on  taking  part in challenges, and posting what I make, I never seem to get the cards done on time and so just do not post them.  Hopefully that will change after I move and have more time to devote to crafting.  That is why I like monthly challenges.  It gives me enough time to get something posted.

Anyway, this is a card for CCAYR challenge which is- to be inspired by a Christmas song.  My song is
"Christmas Star".  It was featured in the movie "Home Alone"

This is such a CAS card and I love it.  I had such fun making the stars.  I cut them out of chip board and then just kept adding shiny stuff with UTEE.  There are micro beedz, glitter, gold leaf, pearl seed beads, and anything else I had that was blingy.
I used pop dots to add this to an embossed panel that I made using a sheet of dimentional star stickers.  I used my tan sheet for this.  I used a retired SU image for the sentiment and embossed that with Gold tinsel ep.  I sponged the edges with gold and glued everything together and I was done.

I was having so much fun making the stars, I did not stop at 5, but made 10 of them, so I now have 10 cards to add to my stash.

Only problem with these cards is that they are too thick to go through the "slot", so they will be for my intown friends.

I hope you like the card I made.  If you have any questions, please email.

Happy day to you all.

A great CAS style card, Love the blingy star too. I saw a comment from you on Gail's blog and came for a look.
Don't throw the 70's and 80's gear out they are much in demand in the retro shops. Some young thing would probably snap them up. LOL.
