{SS} Wee Willie w/ Candle

Good morning and happy Saturday!!
I (Calypso) am here to share a card I made using, all new goodies that I received in my last order form SweetStamps.
I have been seeing all the cool and wintery backgrounds being made using the distress inks and I just had to get on the wagon and try it.  For the my card today, I pulled out the following distress ink pads:  Chipped Sapphire, Faded Jeans, Stormy Sky and Tumbled Glass and for the ground Antique Linen and Walnut Stain.  I know that the card does not look like it has all those colors, but trust me iI did!!  :) 

Once I colored the background,  I used White Dye ink to stamp Tiny Snowflake Border three times.  
I really did like how it looked, but I wanted to add a little something.  That little something was the Christmas Star stamp.   After coloring Wee Willie w/ Candle, I proceed to some fussy cutting therapy!!  LOL
I added extra white detail to the star.  To add a little more glow around the star, I dabbed my finger into the white dye ink and rubbed gently.  I did this several times, until I achieved my dissed look.
 For Wee Willie I used the following  Copic markers:E49,47, 44, 11, 00, 000, R59, 46, 37, 35

Thanks for stopping by today!!  See you soon.
