BIC31 Christmas Wishes and CC192 Psalm 23

Happy Tuesday everyone!!! I have two cards for you today!!! My first one is for the CC192 using Pacific Point, Certainly Celery, Basic Gray. Some cool colors!!!

I used the beautiful *Psalm 23* Set from *Our Daily Bread Designs*.

There is really not too much about this card other then I embossed the right hand Certainly Celery Panel with the *Just my Type* CB folder. Next I added some Silver Brads on the bottom and the Ribbon is from Michael's.

************************************
Next is my card for Beate's *Be Inspired*
Challenge #31
.
It is this cute little *birdie mobile*.

I actually planned on making a *baby*card, but then I was looking thru my stash of *birdie* stamps and it's sad to say that I don't have any at all......but then I realized I have one Set I have not used at all.....

Okay - so the Inspiration Piece took me into a whole different direction.....I opted for this gorgeous Set from *Little Paper Shop*!!!

Remember I missed the whole September Release due to Customs holding on to my Stamp Set's??? Well, today I finally have a chance to show off two of the gorgeous Set's Julia had featured back then.

The Set's are called *Christmas Wishes* and *Snowflakes*. For this card I used the oh so fab retired *Purely Pomegranate*and Whisper White. The DP is from the retired *Holiday Harmony*. I inked the *dove* with Versamark and then embossed it with Silver EP. Next I layered it onto Whisper White and then Purely Pomegranate. This panel was raised with Stampin Dimensionals. I also added some Silver Brads to the panel. Before I layered the image to the base I inked the sentiment in Versamark and also embossed it. To finish it all off I added the Purely Pomegranate Satin Ribbon!!!

I hope you like my card??? ~TFL~

If you like - play along.....all the deeds are on Beate's blog and don't forget to check out all the other ladies - Charmaine Ikach, Danielle Lounds, Dawn McVey, Jennifer Buck and Susan Roberts.
