Paper Star - template link now working - sorry folks!

Afternoon bloggers.
Tammy had some crafting time last night and finished off this morning. 
I'm a follower of Inger's blog and she made the most amazing paper star lantern I have ever seen. 
I fell in love with it straight away and just HAD to make one.
You can find the template HERE
It really does have a vintage feel about it.....gorgeous...and I have another glued up and waiting to dry out for me to embellish.
I have used the adorable Christmas Morning Tilda - so sweet.
Coloured her with Pro-markers - soft creams and beige's, glitter added to her frills. Mounted her on to silver mirror board.
I then cut the template down in Adobe and added sentiments. Cut out and glued on to the star. 
Sentiments say - Believe in the Magic - May the Magic of Christmas Warm your Heart and finally a greeting which says its from me and my family. Punched lots of snow flakes and added gems in white and silver to the centers. I'm actually so pleased how this looks.
There is cheese cloth and some lace behind Tilda and a white / silver bow, with a glittered snowflake attached to the front with a christmas tag behind. Silver beads have been glued to the end of each point.
Once everything was set and dried I gave it a spray of glimmer mist.
I'm going to be entering this project into some  challenges as its been a long time since I entered one.
First Challenge is TOMIC which is Vintage and Lace - I think the star qualifies for this challenge.
Secondly The Shabby Tea Room which is Winter Picnic. They asks that you create a card or project inspired by the photo and USE WHITE OR CREAM, NEUTRALS, SILVER AND GLITTER! I've definately covered that.
Simon says Stamp Challenge - Anything Goes
Cutie Pie Challenge - Pastel Christmas
Stamptacular Sunday Challenge - Anything Christmas
Addicted to Stamps - Christmas Card
Magnolia Down Under - Let it snow
Fussy and Fancy Friday - Make a gift anything but a card
Totally Papercrafts - Christmas

Right I am off - to create again.
