Calm Blue Night

 Happy Friday!
I hope your week has gone well! Are all of your Christmas cards mailed & presents sent? Me too. NOT! Most of the cards have been mailed but not all of the presents have been sent. I tell you, having this awful cough that just won't go away has really set me back. My temp is on the rise again so I'm pretty sure it's off to the Dr. for me. I sure hope you all have managed to avoid this mess. 

So as I mentioned last week, my remaining cards need to be on the quick side. After die cutting the front white panel, I made an arched frame for the window in order to have the dk blue show thru. I stamped the splatter bg in the opening w/ the white ink then added some stickles for sparkle. The light string was stamped w/ gray & lightly colored & the greeting stamped in black below it. The die cut trees were added w/ a little more stickles.

Here's a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.
