Hello my CMHCD friends,
Welcome to a special edition from CMHCD! For today I am sharing our next challenge at Color My Heart Color Dare. Team B is now showing our traditional side to Christmas colors. I used only one color, navy, the rest are either neutral or metallic gold. Here is my card for today, enjoy!
Left: 'The Star of Bethlehem' was die cut using the metallic paper and then covered with vellum. I die cut another embellishment from the same cardstock and added one jewel in the center. The card is an A2 size card. I had to create the card part a bit smaller to compensate for the star hanging over the edge of the card. Right: I stamped the scenery of Bethlehem in light gray for depth. I had to fill in the surrounding with a gray colored pencil leaving the halo appropriately white.
An interesting note regarding the 'Christmas Star' was in the news recently. I will link to the article here. Essentially the alignment of Jupiter and Saturn will be the closest it has been in 800 years. This conjunction will be so bright that it will look like a star, a Christmas Star.
How utterly appropriate to end such an awful year. A year full of fear, death, and falsehoods only to end with a planetary alignment as bright as a star. A star that will represent hope and light- at least for me.
Well, thank you again for taking the time out of your busy day to visit my corner of the internet. I do hope you will join us at Color My Heart Color Dare and play along.
