Yet another image from Mo Manning.  This one is called "reach for the star" and is so versatile, I'm using as a Christmas card this time.  I quite like to brown tones at the moment so this has finished up as monochromatic.  I used Copic pen to colour this image and stickles glitter for texture to highlight the land part of the globe.

The backing papers were all scraps left over from previous projects.

I embossed the edges of the image with gold embossing powder and then added stickles.

The flourish embellishments were cut with Marianne dies and I used a brad and a couple of pearls to complete this project.

Hope you like as this is such an adorable image.

Best wishes,
