Golden Merry Christmas!

I love making Christmas cards!  Not sure exactly why, but I can say that I have several extras--head start for next year?  Maybe the inspiration I keep seeing from these photos on Inspired By All the Little Things is doing it!  Their Challenge #74 give us this inspirational photo:
A link to the challenge is HERE.
I'm also entering this into Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: Star Light, Star Bright.

I don't have a larger star die cut, so I turned to my Cricut Explore and found this star to use.  I've listed all the supplies below.

Here's a close up of the beautiful die I cut in gold mirror card stock.

This card was really easy to make (once I got it all how I wanted!)  Thank you so very much for taking a look!

Stamps:  Sunny Studios Holiday Style; Concord & 9th Petals and Pallets
Die:  Impression Obsession Merry Christmas
Embossing Folder:  Sizzix 3-D Textured Impressions Winter Snowflakes
Ink:  Hero Arts Soft Granite; Memento New Sprout; Hero Arts 2 different greens (no name--was in a kit)
