Well, I had such a time trying to come up with what I considered to be an encouraging quote to use on my card - it was just about bedtime last night when I was finished.
This started out as a 5 3/4" square, but in the end I trimmed an inch off the bottom, so I'll have to customise an envelope.
I printed the quote using Samurai font.
Stamped Penny Black image above it with Versafine Black.
Coloured in the daisies and leaves with Sakura glaze pens, which acted as a resist when it came to sponging - I experimented first to check :D.
Heavy sponging with Faded Jeans all round the edges, then I masked off the sentiment and continued to sponge over the image panel. I added Liquid Pearls and a little chipboard bird sponged with red ink and embossed with clear EP. I also stamped some music notes on from WhipperSnapper's Pond Life set, and highlighted them with clear Sakura stardust pen.
To finish I added Cuttlebug Vintage corners cut from white card over the sentiment, and highlighted them with a clear Sakura stardust pen.

"What would happen if we all tried to be like Santa and learned to give as only he can give: of ourselves, our talents, our love and our hearts? Maybe we could all learn Santa's beautiful lesson and maybe there would finally be peace on Earth and good will toward men."
