Silent Night

Can you believe that it's just over a month to Christmas?

I have SO MUCH to do!

Just wanted to pop in and share a Christmas card with you today.

This one was fun because it is kind of unexpected, at least I think.  When I looked at this background it reminded me of rays of light, kind of like Van Gogh's Starry Starry Night painting.  I used a sponge dauber and sponge tool to add Sunkiss Yellow and Outdoor Denim ink to my which Cardstock panel.  Then I stamped the background stamp in Outdoor Denim. 

The sentiment was embossed with in white and I carefully added a very pale yellow to it with a Spectrum Noir marker.

The entire panel is then popped out with foam tape. 

I really love this one, and was thinking about using it for our Christmas cards this year, but with all the sponging it is a rather labor intensive card, so I decided against it. 

Hope that you are having a wonderful week.  Be sure and come back tomorrow.  There is BIG news coming.....I can hardly stand it!
