WOW .... It's Been Awhile

Stamping Friends, thanks for stopping bye. Life has been so busy around here but now that Convention has come and gone hopefully things will get back to normal.

The card I am sharing today is one that I design for a Challenge on SUDSOL using the following picture for inspiration.

When I started to think about this challenge I knew I wanted to try to find a stamp set that I could use for the swirls. I did not want to use the Baroque Motifs or the Flourish from Elements of Style. I looked through my stamp set samples and found Snow Swirled. I figured I could turn the tree and make a border with it. I did have to use the stamp-a-ma -jig to line it up but other than that it was pretty easy to complete.

The dove is from the stamp set Gifts of Christmas. I stamped it twice and cut the bird out, sponged the edges and then sponged on Champagne Shimmer Paint and popped it on top of the first image I stamped using dimensionals.

Thanks for stopping bye.
