merry and bright

Pile It On is hosting a month long, Anything Goes Christmas/Holiday challenge, so come over and join us.

I made this card for my grandfather, Papa Bill. I'm pretty sure it will make him smile. :)

My card features a Newton's Nook set called 'Newton's Holiday Mischief'. I stamped him with Memento's Tuxedo Black ink and colored him with my Copic markers. I used a Spica pen for the base of the lights. The sentiment is from one of favorites that is unknown. I used VersaFine ink.

I love the little bit of red and green but mostly white. :)

On the inside, I used a stamp from the same set as on the outside of the card.

Thanks for looking! I hope this finds you happy and healthy.
