Layers of Christmas Greenery

I am back after a visit from my daughter's family. As my craft room is also a guest room, I had to put everything away so my grandsons would have a space to sleep--I tend to scatter things out on the bed--and everywhere else also. LOL!!
Loved having them here--grandsons are 4 & 7. They actually inspired part of my card today. I bought them an art set from Crayola called Color Wonder. It comes with markers that applied to the paper create colors. There was a magic mettalic pad in the set. They showed me that if you color the paper solidly you come up with gorgeous shimmer paper. So I colored this one with the blue marker. The picture doesn't do it justice.
Other supplies: Kraft cardstock, Dark blue cardstock, DP scrap, Hero arts evergreen stamp, sentiment from an old Christmas greeting set. Tim Holtz distress dark green ink, Color Box royal blue ink.
Here is the inside.
This is for challenges from: Papercraft Star (holiday greenery), Tuesday Throwdown (lots of layers)
and I used an old sketch from Simon Says Stamps.
