This is my last Regal Reinder card for this week.  And it is another calm and peaceful card.  For some reason, this card reminds me of an old song we used to sing.  "Let there be Peace on Earth, and let it begin with me."

With the construction going on in my house, I feel like I could use some peacefulness.  Living in a construction zone is not for the faint of heart!

Today's card uses the Bokeh Technique which I demonstrated on my YouTube Channel a couple of weeks ago.  If you missed the video, you can always watch the replay.

This technique is fun and very easy, and doesn't it make a pretty background for my Regal Reindeer and his little bunny friend?  Let me introduce you to Reggie and Hope -- you decide which is which!

Reggie and Hope look like they are having a nice friendly conversation, don't they?  I wonder what they are talking about.  Maybe that Christmas is coming and that our world could certainly use more friendly conversations and some Peace on Earth!

The colors used for Reggie and Hope's sky were Blueberry Bushel, Azure Afternoon, Highland Heather and Balmy Blue.  Of course, Craft White ink was used for the Bokeh dots.  A few snowflakes are drifting through the air courtesy of the Snowflake Assortment embellishments.  For a little additional sparkle I added a small Rhinestone to each snowflake.  It doesn't show in the photo, but I used my Balmy Blue Blender Pen to color those rhinestones.

I made a boo-boo on the inside of the card and stamped my sentiment crooked, so I just redid it on a separate piece of cardstock and then added a small Balmy Blue mat to the sentiment.  That made it easy to straighten out.  If you are better at stamping straight than I am -- you can skip this step.  Although I do kind of like how it looks with the Balmy Blue Snowflakes stamped around it.
