Peace to the World - WMS Forum Nov Christmas Challenge

Hi Stamping friends!  I have a Christmas Card for you today -  and I'm happy to say I now have enough cards made for my Christmas Card List!  
Yes siree - I've been making Christmas cards every month since January with the Waltzingmouse Christmas Card Challenge in the Playroom of the WMS forum. I usually make 3 or 4 of the card I make each month but this time I just made one since I'm at the finish line!

This month Lynn's theme for us was to use a source of light on our cards (candles, moon, lights etc)
For my source of light I used this pretty lantern from Little Lanterns.  The sentiments are from Say It Loud -Winter Holiday and the background is stamped with the beautiful Yonder Star Backgrounder.  I sponged the edges with Ranger Distress Shabby Shutters.

After I did my stamping -  I applied Crackle Accents by Ranger to the glass part of the lantern and on the Peace sentiment banner.
It creates a lovely crackled look but it did 'blurr' the ink on the candle and flame a little bit.
I was going to use the big word JOY from Say It Loud with the smaller words "TO THE WORLD"  but decided to go with the Peace instead.
Are you done with your holiday cards yet??!!

Winner, winner, chicken dinner! LOL

Seriously Julia, this is the most beautiful card - I absolutely love it above all the others! Your use of the crackel glass makes the lantern look real and sweet - in a mystical way.
