The month of January's Christmas Card Challenge on the Waltzingmouse Stamps Forum is to create a card featuring a day or night-time sky. There are some amazing cards posted, including some featuring a great stamp of Santa and his sleigh against a starry sky. I don't have that stamp, though, and was a little stumped about what to do.
Then my family mentioned we might see a rare display of the Aurora Borealis in our neighborhood (we didn't) and that got me thinking of a Northern Lights sky. The stamp set 'A Cottage Christmas' was just the ticket to create a scene to set against that backdrop. One more 2012 Christmas card completed!
