Silent Night

Wow! I can't believe it's Thursday again! Not only is it my day to post but it's one day closer to Fri-YAY!!! 

We are featuring Christmas in July on the High Hopes blog and today I am sharing a card using an older High Hopes image called "Shepard's Awe". I love that High Hopes has so many images to choose from you can always find the perfect one! 
This stamp is perfect for Christmas cards for my in-laws. 
When I saw this stamp, the Silent Nigh Christmas carol came in to my head almost immediately. 

Close Up

As always, I started by colouring my image with alcohol markers and then this one I chose to cut out with a stitched square die. This sentiment was created on my computer. A star banner piece was cut out with a die and I added some clear Wink of Stella to it as well as the yellow star - always so hard to see in a photo. A few blueberry gumdrops finish off my card.
