Silent Night

LeAnne brings us this week's Merry Monday Christmas Challenge.  Her favorite Christmas carol is Silent Night and she would like us to make a card that invokes the calm peaceful feeling of a "Silent Night" before Christmas.  I have so many stamps that qualify for this challenge that I had a hard time picking out which stamp to use.  After making about 4 different cards, I was happiest with my last one. 

I used Gina K's Pure White Luxury card stock and SU's Night of Navy card stock and ink for this card.  I used Hero Arts Starry Night.  I trimmed around the image and attached it to white card stock to make it look like an instant photo.  I added PTI's sentiment from Think Big Favorites #21.  I took a little bit of Perfect Pearls and added a little water.  I used a small paintbrush and flicked the Perfect Pearls over the Night of Navy Card stock and also added some dots of Perfect Pearls to the stamped image, too.

Thank you for stopping by and don't forget to check out the other "silent night" themed Christmas cards over at Merry Monday Christmas Challenge 130.
