Happy Hanukkah

I just finished taking a World Religions course as part of my goal to keep my aging brain engaged. And so it was in this frame of mind, I created today's Dreamweaver Challenge card. The theme for August is "Christmas in August" and so I varied it the theme slightly to include our Jewish friends.

The stencil I used, LJ926 Happy Hanukkah, is a brand new one that was released at CHA last month.

To create the card, I used the Molten Magic technique with Dreamweaver's Glossy Blue Embossing paste and sprinkled it while wet with Metallic F/X powders in: Wedgwood Blue, Pewter and Gold Dust.

I kept the card very simple as Hanukkah is a religious holiday and I did not want to offend anyone with my taking any artistic liberties.

Please take some time to go visit other Dream Team blogs today to see what they've created for their Christmas in August challenge. All the participating members links are below:
