Merry Christmas!!!! ODBD - His Gift

Merry Christmas my friends!!!

I hope you will celebrate this glories day with your families or friends!!!

We have my In-Laws coming later in the afternoon and we'll celebrate Christmas Evening together!!!

I had a chance to stamp last night.....and I wanted to share this card with you.

I used the gorgeous His Gift Set from Our Daily Bread Designs.

The S.E.I. Design Paper is also from the ODBD's called Peppermint Bark Mint. Not only does it sound yummy it is yummy!!!

The image was inked in Memento Rich Cocoa and the poinsettia was colored with Copic Markers.

After I was done coloring I added the Dazzle Versamark and heat embossed it with Glassy Glaze Enamel Powder. To achieve the *Cracked Glass* technique I repeated this process 4 times. I finished the card off by adding Gold Pearls, a Red Satin Ribbon, the Gold Cord and the Button.

Hope you like it?!?

Please don't forget to pray for our servicemen and women that keep this wonderful country safe and won't be able to celebrate with their loved ones!!!

May God bless you and your families!!!

Hugs ~Silke~
