MC Sept/13 - Gate Fold - Merry Xmas

This card is a direct result of a class I taught yesterday. The thought just hit me while I was demoing outlining some letters with white ink on black cardstock and painting with iridescent type watercolors... and I said to myself (actually out load...) it would make a nice Xmas card done on dark green or dark blue cardstock... This is the result.

You can see all the
details and descriptions by click on either card image. Enjoy.

I'm using several Quietfire Design stamps

And it fits for these challenges:
