Christmas Star

I have always thought this stitched star is great for a simple Christmas card but I think it could be used for any occasion.

Birthday Cupcake

Cupcakes seem to be everywhere these days so I couldn't resist stitching this cupcake.

I have also stitched the same design but with a pink border.

Noel Blues

It's early to start thinking about Christmas but I really like how this card turned out so I thought I would use it as my first post.  I wasn't sure how this colour combination would work for a Christmas card but I am pleased with the result.

Message inside the card:
"may your days be merry and bright"

I have seen all kinds of beautiful cards that people have made for different challenges but without a blog I was unable to participate.  So today I tried my first challenge at Freshly Made Sketches.   I changed the direction of the sketch but I think it still works.
