Simon Says - show some tickets

HI, and Happy Thanksgiving to my American friends!   This week's challenge from Simon Says - is to show some tickets - and that means Tim Holtz!  ......Wish Upon a Star......

I had to incorporate this into a Christmas card because I still have plenty to make and there's only a week of November left, yikes! 

The base card is a 6x6 card and a sheet of pearlescent blue paper then the scalloped edge mat - you may have noticed I've used a lot of these this year (I'm running low, will need to change my theme soon!!) with Wendy's stars stamped twice in chipped sapphire and twice in stormy sky (second impression stamping, to get a light colour)   I lightly inked the adage ticket with the blender tool and covered it with rock candy crackle for a bit of shimmer.

It's been so long since I managed to take part in this challenge, what with one thing and another, and it's nice to be back at it!!

The stamp in the centre is a Crafty Individuals one, only I trimmed off the "jingle bells" bit from the bottom, stamped on a scrap of card.

I bought that stamp too as I fell in love with it when I saw it.
A lovely card and I am sure one that will be received with open arms by the challenge team.

I love those stars every time you use them. I'm not much of a stamp addict but may have to treat myself to those after Christmas - don't s'pose you can message me the proper name or linky for them so I can find them?

Another great card - I always love the colour combo's you use!
