Twinkling Stars R#61

Here we are at another Friday,
We had a wonderful quiet ThanksGiving yesterday and today is the start of a new Challenge over at Crafts 4 Eternity:-)
The Challenge is: 1. To use the sketch below
2. Add some stars somewhere on your project!
The prize this week is 3 digi images, Christmas ones have been added recently
I decided to use my wonderful Magnolia Tilda holding her star wand, and glued tiny star confetti to the dangling stars:-) Some yellow MS type of confetti glitter added to the large star. The DP is from a DCWV stack I've had and thought it would be fun to use just the part with the snowman, I added SU ultra fine glitter to the snowman and snow drifts, some more confetti stars were glued to the background and prima flowers with a glitter covered brad were added to finish off the bottom. a EK success border punch was used and it had a tiny dot cut out above each scallop that I hid with the aqua and brown cs. I made the card 5.5x5.5.
I would also like to add this card to the following:
paper play : stars
paper take weekly : Cut it out
