For unto us

yep, another Christmas card, but I have to say, I love the simplicity of this one. I used this week's sketch challenge from Our Daily Bread Designs and if I don't finish all my cards before Christmas, this just might be the sketch I use for the rest of them. The papers are all DCWV, the sentiment is from Verve's "Richly Blessed". I layered up the focal panel; starting with Labels 4 (which I cut apart to get the right placement), then the sentiment layer, green layer with standard scalloped ovals large, and ended with the polka-dotted layer with a standard oval large cut out. Doing it this way just added something a little more fun than the traditional larger to smaller layering.

So pretty, Heather! I love the simplicity of this card, too. Looks as if you're getting a head start on Christmas and that is a good thing. Those are my favorite kind of cards to make.

Thanks for all you wonderful comments on my Flourishes GDT cards. I had so much fun and hated to see it end.
