My background stenciling was done on black cardstock. I used Tim Holtz Flourish stencil and texture paste mixed with gold acrylic paint. I was able to get a reflected pattern simply by using one side of the stencil, letting that side dry, then flipping the stencil over and doing the other side of the card. Once it was all dry, I replaced the stencil and went over the flourishes with my metallic wax rub on my finger.
I didn't have Linda's doves, but I liked the idea of the die cuts, so I chose Tim's Victorian Carolers and cut them twice--once from black card and once from manila file folders. I edged both the black and the manila cuts with my metallic wax rub and layered them up, offsetting for a glow-y halo. The carolers were popped up with Ranger black adhesive foam tape.

I am sharing this card with these inspiring challenges:
-Morgan's Art World-Challenge #23- Use An Item From Your Stash I used my old ribbon seambinding and gave it a facelift with Tarnished Brass spray. The Spellbinders die is also an old item from my stash.
-Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge-Trio-Tastic I used three snowflakes.
Addicted to Stamps-Challenge #136-Die Cutsand/or Punches (with a stamp) I used a Heidi Swapp stamp top and bottom. 12/11
-Deep Ocean Challenge#142-"Inspired By a Song or a Movie" I was inspired by the carol "Joy to the World".
Thank you for stopping by today and for all your encouraging comments! I read and appreciate each and every one of them!
