The Light Me Home set is such a classic winter scene that I knew I had to have it.  Then trying to design the card was a bit more troublesome.  When I saw the current Global Design Project Color Challenge, it made me immediately think of this set. And I had been asked about a Skinny card for a class I have coming up.  My idea for using the color challenge on the sky fit perfectly for a tall and skinny card.  This way I have a lot more sky to play with.



The Global Design Project Challenge is a Color Challenge.   #GDP267

I really love these colors and they fit perfectly for the sky with my Light Me Home stamp.  I sponged all three colors beginning with the Balmy Blue at the top.  I overlapped each one just a bit.  I also stamped the image in Misty Moonlight.

I could have added more color to the stamped area, but decided I liked the “snowy” look with the beautiful sky above. It did need a bit of Something else.  So I added a few snowflakes in Balmy Blue to the night sky.  The snowflakes are from the Flight of Fancy stamp set.

The sentiment is from the stamp Light Me Home set also.  I stamped it with Highland Heather on the Balmy Blue card stock.  The layers are die cut using the Layering Circles.  I added a single Pearl for a touch of glimmer and as an acknowledgement of the snow.
