Christmas cards round 6....

Ok today was a challenge for me... I decided I wanted to use today's sketch challenge over on SCS, it can be found here SC152. I used to retired SU sets.




I had an idea for this card and think it didn't quite come through. Someone on SCS had posted a poem on the board called The Christmas Rose by Frances Cooper Thompson. I'm not sure if this is the right layout but I will deal...









I love the way the inside of the card came out thought. The set for the insides was the retired Holiday mini set Heavenly Peace from last year... I love my religious sets that SU has come out with just wish they wouldn't retire every time. Hope you all have a great evening... See you again tomorrow...




Supplies:
Stamps: Retired Heavenly heralds set, retired Heavenly Peace
Cardstock: Blue bayou, soft sky textured cs, brushed silver, shimmery white, scraps of Designer paper
Ink: buckaroo blue, black stazon
Accessories: Stitched soft sky ribbon, watercolor crayons, large regular and scalloped oval nestablities. ( I've gotten my nestablities from All That Scraps and Ellen Hutson If you have a die cut machine these are a must have...)

These are such elaborate and beautiful cards! WOW! You really went all out. Oh, and shame on your for hawking those nestabilities! I've been fighting with myself for a month.
