I think this card turned out beautifully. I used classic designer papers, a real hymn page and sewn on the the hymn and card edges, added some distressing to the hymn edges and flower also. The ribbon matches very well with the DP on the front. The main image is a Christmas ornament. Merry Christmas from Heaven, a heart felt card to send to someone that lost someone very dear to them. I ran across this ornament while in search of Vintage treasures and finds for my new store called Era of Vintage and decided to purchase it for a Christmas card instead.
I have entered this card in the following Challenges, over at The Pixie Cottage where the theme this challenge is "Getting Stitchy". The second challenge (and I have been meaning to join in long before this) is at Saturday Spotlight where this week is make an ornament or a project with an ornament, I made a card with an ornament attached. The third challenge is over at Quixotic Challenges and this challenge is on tearing. It is hard to tell in these photos but I torn the small hymn page, distressed it and sewn it on the card front. Elaine stated in her card write-up she was nervous about ripping designer paper and here I was ripping a hymn, is that a sin? I sure hope not. The forth challenge is at Pollycraft challenge blog where it is a Christmas theme, not very hard to do at this time of year. The fifth challenge is at Flourishes Timeless Tuesday where they are also Christmas themed, how about that? The sixth and final challenge is at Sunday Stampers where they are asking for Holly or Ivy to be stamped. Not all cards/images are stamped at times so I am hoping that the Holly on the metal ornament qualifies in their challenge. I am off to link up with the challenge blogs.
Thank you all for stopping by and leaving your comments, hope you have a good day. Blessings, Jane
