God Bless You

Hi guys. I've been working on some cards the past week...and finally found a few moments to post one for you. :)

I have a new (for me) Cuttlebug folder that I've been wanting to use...but haven't had much success with using it on a card. It's a border folder...and it kind of requires a focal image in the center. This is what I came up with...


I used a stamping set from Stampin Up that I absolutely LOVE!!! I stamped the image...and then cut it out...and added some dimensional foam behind the cross to lift it a bit.


I also added some vallum which I stamped with the sentiment.



LOVE how it turned out...and I'll be sure to use this sketch a lot in the future! :)



Some Challenges for my card:

4 Crafty Chicks:Anything Goes
Fairytale Stamper: Something New (embossing folder)
Daring Cardmakers: Sentimental
