Sweet Pea Christmas

THis is going to be a fast post as I am trying to get in bed early(Unusual for me) but with still be alittle sick this past week has really got me down and lets not even talk about home work!!
Ok to my card... I colored this image "Cherish Christmas" by ching chou kuiks at Sweet Pea Stamps (sheet #21/ Plate #60)and decided I wanted to cover it with some glossy accents to make it look like glass. As I set down to create a card for her I had this idea of creating a card that looks like a church. I remembered I had a stained glass embellishment and then it all started to come together. I added pop dots to the center piece the steple part of the church to give dimension to the church.

I drew in the side stained glass windows and colored it with copics then went over it with some Twinkling H2o's and then added some liquid glossy accents over them. I cut out black strips and pop dotted them to create the steps of the church. The bushes under the windows are some Vellum stickers that were actually trees that I cut and layered with pop dots to add dimension.
Here is a close-up of the image, stained glass and shrubs.

Here is a pic of the shine from the glossy accents.

I also added some yellow silky rope/twine around the steple( center part of the card) just to give it that finished look and it also hides the pop dots when looking at it from the side.

Well I hope this inspired you to get creative with your next card and do something different!!
I really love how this card turned out!! This Christmas card will go to someone special to me..My Mom!! She'll love it!!
Well I'm off to get ready for bed and hope to get caught up with everyone's creations tomorrow!! Have a great night/evening/morning , depending on where you live and thanks for stopping by!!!
