Make it Monday #185 Faux Stained Glass

Make it Monday #185 Faux Stained Glass
 
Betsy Veltman has made another fabulous card
showing off a faux stained glass technique. You can find how she did it Here
 
My card that I made today sure sparkles in real life.  As usual it is hard to see.  Here it is.
 
This are unusual colors for a Christmas card, but I like the way it turned out.  I will use it for one of my cards this year.  I used the Shakers and Sprinkles Kit for most of this one.  The wreath is from Wreath for all Seasons ( PTI) and is stamped onto clear cardstock with Black Stazon and Gold Stazon.   I really need at new one, I think mine has done dried up.  The Joy is a PTI die that I have used many times.  It is a shaker card with some white glitter for the snow.  The base of this card is Prickly Pear and the oval is Tomato Soup and the Joy is Dark Chocolate, all from GKD.  The design paper on the bottom, is from a pack called Autumn Abundance, PTI. Then, I cut the birds from a memory box die called Resting Birds.  I used Wink of Stella on the Joy.  Well, I am on a roll now,  I have 5 Christmas cards made.  I know, some of you out there have way more than that made by now, but I am a all geared up now. 
Thanks so much for taking a look and I hope that I inspired you today.
