Wish Upon a Star

Good afternoon

I was awake at 5:30 this morning and couldn't get back to sleep so decided to get up and make a card.  Seeing as I had coloured this Mulberry Wood image last weekend and there are several Christmas in July challenges at the moment I decided to make another Christmas card.  

The image has been coloured with Spectrum Noirs and I have coloured the night sky following a great tutorial on the lovely Leann Chiver's blog.
