Pleasant Words.... sweet to the soul!
Hello friends! I hope you are enjoying this Christmas season and finding time to reflect on HIS indescribable gift! I'm popping in to share a window card I made using several of this month's new releases from Our Daily Bread designs. I used the Stitched Background for my front, and cut out my window with the Our Daily Bread designs custom Elegant Oval Die, made by Spellbinders for ODBD. I also used the Honeycomb Background for the inside, embossing it with clear embossing powder and then using a resist technique, I sponged on T Holtz distress ink in Scattered Straw. I used the Daisy/Black Eyed Susan set, stamping three times and cutting out elements I wanted to use and coloring with Copics. I used a sentiment from Little Things for my inside sentiment and cut it with Spellbinders Label One, then matted with SB Ornate Artisan Tags & Accents. The little gingham ribbon was in my stash, and I added the bees from Simple Things, making the stitched background look like their trails.
I don't know about you, but I love winter and snow until Christmas, but then I'm ready for spring, so hopefully this card will make someone smile not long after the holidays are over I'm sure! I will share another springy card soon! Meantime... be blessed as you celebrate this wonderful season!
I am entering this in the following challenges:
