As promised I am going to be using the two paper pads shown in an earlier blog to make all of my Christmas cards for this year. The first couple of cards are using papers from Studio Calico Magical Collection 2013.
When I thumbed through this pad, I noticed this starry night sheet and I knew I had to use it on the cards with these christmas trees. The Christmas tree stamp and die set are from a recent Michaels haul. The sets were on sale for a ridiculous $4. This was the week before Black Friday. I love the smoky gray of the background and the bright stars. It is a great contrast for the green of the trees. The Copic markers used on the trees are listed below the pic. After coloring each tree I gave them a heavy coat of Wink of Stella (WOS).

I have decided to enter these two cards into the Wednesday Challenge at Simon Says Stamp. The challenge for Wednesday, November 23, was titled Christmas To Die For. I would actually die for a Christmas in which I could play in the snow. The likelihood of that happening is very slim since I live in Louisiana. But a girl can dream!
