It is the time of the season that you want PEACE. Sometimes, quietness is where I get my peace when it doesn't come from within. Where I live, outside,  the night it is quiet. It is a sleepy little town that when you step outside into the night air, it is  whole different world from where you stepped out of. The noise that I leave in the house... the hum of the refigerator.. the whirl of the washer, the TV ( that blasted TV) someone playing a guitar, someone in another room listening to music, someone else snoring because they have had a long day, the dishes being done from dinner... and because it is getting cold now so there is the snap snap snap of the fire place, the dogs finally stopping their tap tap tap on our floors. But when I step out side into the crisp cool air and look up into the sky and see all the stars. They are so bright and the depth.. like you can just reach up and touch them.. and the night sky so dark, dark, blue, and that brings me PEACE.

             Our theme over at Happy Little Stampers is STAR.
                       Make a Christmas card with a star.

So this is a stamp by Memory box. I inked it up Chipped Sapphire by Tim Holtz and clear embossed over it to make it shinny. I used the Mixed Christmas Sentiments PEACE I and embossed it to match,  then brought the ink out to fade it out to the sky.

I left the bottom white to represent snow. I then die cut the largest star out of a frame of red card stock to make it POP. I die cut multiple layers out of black card stock and stacked them up to create dimension in multiple sizes of stars

So go make a card with some sort of star and  link up at Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge

Very innovative designing. Also liked the different color shade on the framing star, it draws the eye right into the snowy scene. TFS
