Tidings of Joy - Hand Stamped Sentiments Clean & Simple #83

It's hard for me to create a card that is clean and simple, but I think I accomplished it today - mainly by sticking to only a few colours and keeping the colours muted.  I used no embellishments - well, a little glitter, but stars do glitter--- Sorry, couldn't resist.
Simplicity was the challenge with Hand Stamped Sentiments this week here - to prove that "less is more".

Here's my card:

Stamp: Tidings of Johy
Inks: Black Stazon, Black marker, Watercolor crayons
Papers: Soft suede, So Saffron, Watercolor paper
Accessories: Aqua painter, paper crimper, Dazzling details, dimensionals

No need for embellishments with this stamp!! It tells the story, but I agree, glitter is a must for a star. :) Great job coloring and the colors are a very nice choice. Thank you for joining us this week at Hand Stamped Sentiments.

I think simple is more for this card and its message. Love it! It is perfect for the nativity scene and of course glitter is a must for the star. Thank you for joining us at Hand Stamped Sentiments this week.
