Zentangle: Christmas Star

This is for the I am the Diva weekly challenge #344: use the tangle Afterglo, by Carole Ohl.  I created the image using a software package called Inkscape, placed it on a black background, and applied the filter Combined Lighting to each of the objects in the image to create a metallic effect.
