TAWS - Birthday Theme, Merry Mondays #90 and Simon Says Stamps - Something New


Hello...just a quick post today, back to work yesterday and subbed all day today so not too much crafting time until I get back into my work routine.  My card is a bit of a stretch for the first challenge for TAWS, they are celebrating their 3rd birthday and have a challenge looking for birthday themed cards...since I am still in post Christmas mood and have been dying to use this sweet little set from TAWS and since it is celebrating the birth of our Lord, why not! I stamped the background using VersaMark and than some clear embossing powder and on the star I used clear Wink of Stella, I know it is hard to see in my photo but it looks so pretty with all the sparkles. The second challenge I am entering my card in is for the current challenge over at Merry Monday's, ribbon or twine, this is a fabulous way to stay on top of getting your holiday cards made throughout the year.  And the final one is for SSS, since this set is new that counts,right? 
Thank you so much for taking time to stop by to peek at my card...have a wonderful week!

  11. Love the sparkly star and the gorgeous, rich, deep colors that you have used. Striking contrast against the blue background!

    The ribbon....beyond GOR-GEE-OUS! I love the texture! Perfect mix with the card elemenets as it reminds me of the straw that is in the manger!

  13. According to Dickens "A Christmas Carol", we're supposed to 'keep' Christmas all year 'round! Way to live it!!! This is wonderful. I have to tell you that I love that burlap-y ribbon; it looks like it could be the hay surrounding the manger. LOVE this card. Hope you're staying warm. It got above 10 degrees today! Woohoo!! Bev
