I was lucky enough to be the winner of the Christmas in July blog hop at Lili of the Valley. I won 12 of their adorable rubber stamps. The sweet image on the card below "A time to care" was one of these. I coloured the little angel and her birdie friends with distress markers and a waterbrush. I was trying to channel Fleur of the LOTV Design Team, her colouring skills are absolutely amazing. I certainly didn't attain her level of skill but I'm happy with the results. I cut out my stamped image with Spellbinders labels one and mounted it on some kraft card cut out with spellbinders decorative labels one and embossed randomly with Opals Snow Gum - a ultra thick embossing powder. The patterned paper is from a Kaisercraft 6 inch paper pad called Christmas Collections, I'm not sure if it is still available. I love the vintage look and thought it went well with the image. I created the border by cutting out four strips with the EK success snowflake border punch. The little Kraft tree are cut using a Marianne Designs die and embossed with the same powder. The foliage was cut from white and pearl cardstock using a mixture Whimsy Stamps and Joycrafts dies and punch bunch punch. The sentiment is from a Kaisercraft set simply called Christmas sentiments and was stamped using a detailed white embossing powder from Sparkle N sprinkle on a label from Kaszazz (a Stampin Up style company here in Australia). Thank you for looking.
I would like to enter this card in the following challenge
