here is my 2nd post for today in the game of catch up.....
The Stamping Boutique is back in action, both the store and the challenge blog! Tracey has been busy drawing some fun images for all of us. for the challenges, we're starting off with a Christmas theme so everyone can get a start on those holiday cards. you know me though, I like to make Christmas cards all year long! :)
I have used one of the new images, 'Nativity,' for my card. it is just so precious! my hubby really likes this one. :) papers are Basic Grey Aspen Frost, flower is Petaloo, dies are from MFT, leaf punches are Martha Stewart, and buttons & seam binding come from my stash. the doily was sprayed with 2 shades of glimmer mist. star and halo were painted with shimmerz. a piece of twine was added across the banner. some faux stitching with my white gel pen completes the card.
I intentionally masked a circle around the halo to draw attention to Baby Jesus. He should always be our focus, in my opinion. :)
thanks so much for stopping by! have a most wonderful day!
