Stardust Christmas

Hello my friends,
I have been seeing so many challenges lately to do with Christmas
I decided to join in after seeing the challenge at City Crafters this week
using the photo below for inspiration.
I used to never, ever miss one of their challenges, but I haven't had the time
to join in for quite sometime now, but today decided to jump back!!

I have been quite addicted the the stenciling trend....
I have several NEW stencils, but I keep pulling out my little "Star Dust" stencil.
I used a beautiful Dreamweaver Metallic Gold embossing paste.
I actually stenciled two different panels while I had it out, so I could use another one later.

I wanted to keep my card a clean and simple look, letting the stenciling take center stage
So then I was in a dilemma as to what to do next....
So instead I ate 2 pieces of pizza, at 10 0'clock in the
After washing my pizza sauce fingers off it came to me to pull out my Memory Box 
"Precious Stars" dies which I cut from Spellbinders Precious Metals

The card base is Champaign Neenah Pearlized Metallic paper....
I have all the links for you if any of this makes  you "just gotta have it"!!!!

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
City Crafters .... Christmas In July
Southern Girls .... Christmas Is A Coming
Creative Knockouts .... Christmas In July
A Song In Your Heart .... When you wish upon a star
 Crafting For All Seasons .... Christmas In July
Little Red Wagon .... Christmas In July
