I am submitting this card to this week's PS Trend Watch Challenge. I used the Merry Motifs stamp set and the coordinating die to cut the star as itself and also to create a window in front of my card.  I used Versamark ink to be able to emboss the star with WOW! Platinum embossing powder. Used the Holly stamp to create the tails to create a 'Parol.'  This was stamped in vellum using Versamark ink. Heat embossed with clear embossing powder. Fuzzy cut it.

Back to the 'Parol,' it is a Filipino tradition to hang a Parol during Christmas. It comes in all sizes, shapes and colors. As a tribute to this Filipino tradition and to remember them during this challenging times, I created this card.

This week's challenge...
