O Holy NIght... of my fave Christmas songs. 

When I saw today's Sketch Challenge on SCS, I knew I wanted to highlight this sentiment from Verve's "Peace on Earth" set. Would you believe my card plan all started with this turquoise bling?!  I used Scor-Tape to adhere it to the base.  I paper pieced the "night" portion of the sentiment after coloring with Copics (BG45, BG49) then highlighted the star using Wink of Stella's silver shimmer brush pen.  Stars were punched out from SU's silver glitter cardstock. continue on with the shimmer and shine, I added two strips of black glitter tape under the horizontal strip.

Sharing an excerpt from the book "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas"...
"What makes Christmas?" I asked my soul.
And this answer came back to me:
"It is the Glory of heaven come down in the hearts of humanity - 
Come in the spirit and heart of a Child.
And it matters not what we share at Christmas;
it is not Christmas at all unless the Christ Child be there."
