Card Patterns sketch 96, Creative inspirations inspired by my dream vacation

Tonight's card fits two challenges for this week. The sketch itself is from "Card Patterns", a new sketch challenge that I decided to join. The second challenge is from Creative Inspirations who asked us to create something that is inspired by a dream vacation - now that the stresses of Christmas are over. I used iced blue paint on the water.

Cheerful stamp pad - O Holy Night Challenge

Challenge #7 from the Cheerful Stamp Pad was to emphasize the true meaning of Christmas. To bring it truly home, I used a photoscape of a sunset taken from my back yard. I used a digital image of the tree and the 3 Wisemen and embossed it in black.
