Paper Embroidery, MMSC78 and The Rubber Cafe!

I've still got paper embroidery on my brain, so I decided to add it to my submission for the Midnight Madness Challenge #78 this week.

I chose a double star pattern from my Design Originals Embroidery on Paper book. I used two strands of DMC gold metallic thread to stitch my star. I thought the star stitching was a fun interpretation of the fiber addition on the MMSC sketch.

I embossed the fabulous star from The Rubber Cafe's Ornamental Holiday set. The addition of the gems really makes the card pop! Thanks for the fun ladies....I had a very relaxing morning putting this together!!
