Christmas Card

For this card, I used the Cottage Cutz Nativity 4x4 die. Very simple, but what a  powerful message. After cutting one nativity scene in brown, I cut a second in yellow using only the star which I glued over the brown star. The background paper is perfect as the top shows sun rays streaming down through clouds then the blues slowly blend into yellows and then greens. The sentiment is computer generated.
                                        Merry Christmas to you and blessing for the New Year.

Mojo Monday Challenge

I have followed Mojo Monday Challenge blog for some months and finally decided to play. Using left over paper from a previous project worked perfectly for this card.  This is my granddaughter's 3rd grade school picture.  Can't you tell I am very proud of her!!

Cottage Cutz Blog Challenge

This is my entry in the Cottage Cutz Blog Challenge. We were shown a Tic Tac Toe grid to choose three in a row for our project.  I selected  "die, ribbon and bling". Using the 4x4 Christmas Fawn die works well for the theme of my card, then I added  a ribbon bow and  "bling" is  the colored  Gradient Jewels and crystal Stickles on the floral patterns of the  background paper.  I cut the computer generated sentiment out using a Martha Stewart punch which I then mounted on a brown square with the corners rounded.
