All is Calm Christmas Card ~ Color Dare #465

Friday starts with a fun new Tic Tac Toe Color Challenge at Color My Heart! You pick your colors by row, column or diagonal. Then if you want to use more of the colors in the grid you can. You can even use them all! Please tell us what colors you use when you join the challenge. 

Create any paper craft you like. We reference Close To My Heart colors but you can use whatever brand you have as long as you can make a very close match. Kind of close doesn't count. When you're ready to join the challenge use the link in the post on our home page

I decided to go green with my card and use the diagonal from top left to bottom right: Sage, Silver, Evergreen. After that I added Harbour.

I used Sage as by stamping base for the trees. I stamped in first and second generations with Evergreen and Harbour inks. It created a nice wooded look with depth. the stars above the sentiment were silver embossed and accented with a bit of glitter paper. 

I was so happy with  the Sage layer but it didn't feel "done". As I pondered the situation it came to me.... silver stars! I dotted glue across the top and sprinkled the stars over that area. I tapped off the excess and now have a beautiful "sky" to go with the stamped layer! I also added some sparkle to the darkest trees with silver Stickles.
