City Sidewalks, Busy Sidewalks.....

Good Morning!

Now that Thanksgiving is behind us it's a straight out race to Christmas Eve.  Fa La La La La!

Today's card will be entered into the Challenges at PTI, Glittered Frames, Curtain Call, Clearly Christmas, Simon Says Monday, Holiday Cards and Simon Says Wednesday, Christmas/Holidays.

 
This card uses the PTI stamp and die sets, City Scene.....the more I use it the more I love it!  I first die cut the buildings and trees out and then stamped the images on them, the buildings are a 2 step stamp process, sometimes I actually can line the lights up perfectly......sometimes not, here they are close enough.  I also die cut a layer from Vellum for the buildings to give them a frosty snowy glow.  Then I positioned the city where I thought it would look best and then made my glittery snowy frame.  It really has a wonderful frosty feel to it.  I also stamped a bunch of falling snow and then added more glitter to the sky background.  The edges of the trees also have a soft bit of snow.  The Designer Paper is by Echo Park, Holly Jolly Christmas. I used Memento Pear Tart and Stazon Teal Blue Inks.
 
......Dressed In Holiday Style......
 
May you be singing that for the rest of your day!
 
Merry Merry!
