Calm and Bright

All is calm, all is bright seemed like the perfect sentiment for this quiet place somewhere wonderful. I think I would love it there.

I tried Jennifer McGuire's technique of partial die cut window. Although Jennifer used a regular die cut for her window, I was determined to use my wonky die cut, and I think it worked out okay. 

I did an Ombre sponged sky and added Nuvo Crystals as a bit of falling snow. I added the left over die cut for the bottom panel which was the perfect place to stamp my sentiment. The panel is attached to my card base using foam tape.

I did this card for the Clean and Simple Challenge at Splitcoaststampers where we are to use items beginning with the letters NOV, for NOVember. I did the Nuvo Crystals, Ombre and added the Vellum snowflake. 

Thanks so much for having a look today ... see you next time.
