I just love everything about this photo and chose to stick with the text theme on my card.
I stamped the Crumb Cake card base with both Sanded and Woodgrain background stamps before sponging the edges. The First Edition DSP was given the same treatment without using Woodgrain and this time I distressed the edges before sponging. I mounted this piece onto an Early Espresso layer which I also distressed. The poinsettia uses the two smallest dies in the Spellbinder poinsettia set. I cut three of the larger size and two of the smaller size and then used the smallest of the Basic Pearls for the center. I randomly placed some Linen Thread behind the poinsettia for added interest.
The ribbon part of the challenge is met using some Cherry Cobbler striped grosgrain which is adhered using Sticky Strip. I burned the edge to stop it fraying. The rustic and distressed sentiment is from the Peaceful Pinecones set from PTI. And continuing my resolution of finishing the insides of my cards when I make them, here's the very simple inside.
Thanks for visiting. I hope you have a great week and have time to join in the challenge.
