I tried to think of a card that would be warm and soothing for someone to receive. It is really cold in North Dakota, so I wanted to make something with warm colors. So I stamped the Thomas Kinkade winter scene onto PTI's warm Fine Linen CS using Versafine Toffee ink. Then I added the sentiment from PTI's new Big & Bold Holiday wishes (love this new set) in red.
To finish the card, I spritzed it with PTI's gold mist spray to give it a warm glow and shimmer, almost like a lamp light over the whole scene.
I will be sending this out to Rhonda tomorrow! If you would like to contribute cards to this Christmas Kindness card drive you can find the details on Susan's blog here. Thanks so much for stopping by today. Hope you have a warm and sunny day!

I love anything Thomas Kinkade. Didn't know there was a stamp set with his images. This is really serene with the sentiment stamped in red over the beautiful scene. Very nice job Monica.

Your card came on a cold, snowy North Dakota day. It warmed my heart with the warmth of the picture and your contribution. The shimmer is just perfect. Thanks. Rhonda
