Christmas Star

Hi!  I have 2 cards to share today!!!
First, here's a little card I made using gorgeous Penny Black stamps.
On this card, I took only a tiny fragment of a much larger stamp to make a mini card.
Here is the stamp I used - Royal Greeting:
And here is my card!

See, I used JUST the tiny little bird on top of the post box. :)
Be Merry
I coloured the birds using Prismacolors, perched them on a stitched line, and added a sentiment from THIS Penny Black set.  I added a tiny bit of glitter with a Spica pen to finish.
Be Merry - Close-Up
And secondly, I LOVE this Penny Black stamp... So versatile.
It's the same one I used for THIS card. 
Poinsettia
Poinsettia - Close-Up
Here, I just stamped onto some Papertrey Ink paper, added a pool of Glossy Accents to the centre and added a pile of beads.  The sentiment is from THIS set.
I'm pretty addicted to kraft at the moment... and distress inks...
Penny Black are sponsoring the current Caardvarks challenge... don't forget to check it out HERE and make a card.  There'll be some awesome prizes!
HOORAY FOR FRIDAYS.
And holidays!  I have a whole WEEK starting NOW!!!
