YES!!! I finally got hold of this lovely stamp set from Stampin' Up! - LOVELY AS A TREE. Wohooo!!! I've been longing to have this stamp set for over a year now and much as I wanted to buy one for myself, I just couldn't convince myself to purchase as it's quite exxy for me. ;) But God is really good, He made a way for me to be able to have it when someone I know made a craft clean-up sale and this set is included! I know and believe that this wasn't a chance or luck but God really made it happen.
And since I still have the "sahbby chic" hang-over from the last card that I made (CAS37 challenge), I then once again made another card with the same theme. I did a lot of distressing here and limited my embellishment to just a vintage-looking ribbon which I think I got from Bizzy Becs long ago. The image was stamped with Versamagic Dew Drop "Wheat" and the lovely dsp is from K&Company Charlotte 12x12 pad.
Thanks for looking and may God bless you always!

Wohoo!!! Happy Monday everyone! (doing a happy dance here) You may ask why? Well, I may not be able to make a card for a week now BUT today I was able to make ONE card for FOUR challenges!! Yay!
[ETA: I'm entering this to a 5th challenge!! It's on Mark's Finest Papers Blog and the challenge is Spotlighting! :) ]
Here are the challenges:
WT270 - edge distresser
F4A12 - spotlight technique (my first ever!)
CAS67- shabby chic-themed card
and here's my card:
The first three challenges were from last week which I wanted to play but missed and the CAS is for today, My image (from Jemac Stamps) was coloured with Copic markers (R85, R83, R81). Well, had a bit of mistake as I cut the image first before I coloured it so it's kinda hard to move around and colour as the paper is already too small to control. LOL! But I'm glad I was able to pull through. I distressed the edges of the dp from Basic Grey (sorry I forgot the range), the green cs that was cut with Labels Four and the embossed white cs and I used my first-ever Tim Holtz Distress Ink. Yay!! I know, I'm so well behind with this ink as almost all cardmakers are using distress inks nowadays. Btw, my sentiment is from Stampendous Happy Messages.
Here's a close-up of the image:
Thanks for the visit and hope to see you again on my next post!
Have a blessed day!
