Christmas Lights

Christmas card #4 started out funky - I created the Christmas light borders.  I wasn't sure where to go from there and am not entirely sure I like the result.

I heat embossed a sentiment and then masked the borders before spraying the card with Silver Glimmermist. The masking paper left it's own mark on the card, but I think it actually looks kinda neat. To make the sentiment more apparent, I inked over it with silver ink.

For the final touch, I added the sparkle stamps from PTI's Shakers & Sprinkles Make It Market Kit.
