A different fold at Elisabeth Bell's World

Wow, it's only one month till Christmas!! Can you believe how quickly this year has gone? And im pretty sure things aren't about to slow down now that we are into the silly season!!! I really love christmas, spending time with family and friends, eating all that good food (even though it adds kilos to my waistline) but especailly seeing my kids open their presents on christmas morning!! It just brings pure joy, seeing the looks on their faces as they see what santa has left them!!
My boys have already written up their santa letters with what they would like for christmas and they will be posting them off in two weeks time when we head into the city to meet Santa!!
Anyway, it's time for a new challenge at Elisabeth Bell's World which is A Different Fold and we are being sponsored by Whiff of Joy!! I absolutely love the Elisabeth Bell images you  can get from Whiff of Joy and the santa images are no exception!
I decided to try my hand at a star card that I have seen around the blogging world recently and chose to use Santa reading List (which hasn't been coloured up for awhile)

 My Star card closed
The card open
I coloured Santa Reading List in wth Tria markers and added some Rock Candy stickles to the fur on his hat and coat. I used Green card stock as my base then added the star paper (not sure of the brand) and the cream card stock. I then added the rhinestone (strips) to  each arm of the star!!It looked a bit empty on the cream arms so added the green buttons!! And so that santa sould stand out a bit I stuck him on a green circle tat i cut out and wrapped some twine around it!!
The sentiment inside is from a papertrey ink Christmas set!! I think it turned out pretty good for my first attempt!!
I hope that you will join us this month, I look forward to seeing all your fancy fold cards!! Head on over to the Elisabeth Bell's World challenge blog to see all the details of the challenge!
