The Indescribable Gift



Hello everyone!  Happy Monday and I hope you have a wonderful week ahead!

Here is a card I made Sat. for the Inspiration Challenge over on SCS.  We were to find our inspiration from the Charm Lady Boutique.  There were several that I drew inspiration from including a vintage charm with script in the background.  I used the new Our Daily Bread designs Dec. release set "His Gift" designed by Dina Kowal.  This was so easy and quick to make because the image is so beautiful just as it stamps... it does not need to be colored to be beautiful!  I stamped on very vanilla with chocolate chip ink and matted with very vanilla, deep chocolate by Papertrey and the textured chocolate designer paper is The Paper Studio.   I added some Spellbinder's flourishes in brushed gold scraps and a tiny bow and a few half beads and that was it!  Easy to reproduce in number and what a wonderful Scripture to remind us all of the true meaning of Christmas!

I hope you have a fabulous week!  God bless!
