"The Strength I Need"


Sometimes Christmas is not a fun holiday for everyone. Having lost a family member during the holidays I understand this. I stamped my verse from "Our Daily Bread" and then dry embossed it with a "Cuttlebug" folder.  (I am sorry I can't remember which one.) I then distressed the edges with my SU distresser. I framed it with my "Nestabilities" and then added half pearls to the frame. Both of my red pieces of paper I embossed with my "Cuttlebug"  dotted swiss folder. The white background piece I embossed with my "Cuttlebug" snowflake folder. The image is from "Magnolia" and I colored it with "Copics" and added dimensionals to pop it out. I added a Christmas ribbon to the corner to finish off the card. I am entering this card at http://ourdailybreaddesignsblog.blogspot.com/ and http://stampinfortheweekend.blogspot.com/  and http://audsentimentschallengeblog.blogspot.com/ and http://kraftinkimmiestamps.blogspot.com/
