Well, I think this may be the last card I make before Christmas. I have a lot of ideas clamoring around in my head but I just don't have the time to do them. :-) Today I'm going to make some cookies with my son and just enjoy the holidays.
So, the card. I used and old Hero Arts stamp for this one. It's a limited edition from 1991. It was time to let it see the light of day again.
Its call Peaceful Eve (L774). It is really a very cute stamp. I coloured it in with my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers. Love those markers! Added some Stampin Up dazzling diamonds glitter to the wings of the angel, the garland on the tree and the bottom edges of the window. I used a Creative Memories square punch to make the window as I didn't have a die to do so. It worked okay, I think. I sponged on some Stampin Up soft suede ink on the window using the masking technique to give it dimension.
I'm entering this card into a few challenges. First is for the Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog.

Anyway, that is all for today. Probably won't be posting again until after Christmas. Hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas. Happy Holidays!
