You have a very special place in my heart...

I was blog surfing the other day on blogs that I follow and Jen had created a Christmas card that so inspired me! I enjoyed trying this and hopefully you'll like it, too!


I used the little PWP (purchase with purchase stamp that you can buy for $2.95 with a $30 qualifying order) called Diamond Ornament (TW-3306).  I inked it in L'Amore PH ink then rocked the edges in Noir PH ink before stamping on the white cardstock.  The phrase comes from the Blossoms & Blessings set.  I have some red speckled card stock and cut it with my Wizard and Labels 5 nestie.  I did cut off the bottom edge of the label and used it inside the card. I added the black sheer ribbon and the little gems from the Clear & Pearl Gem Collection




I used my Stardust Clear Gel pen to add a little more bling to the diamonds but it's kinda hard to see.  Are you ready to see the inside?  I so rarely decorate the inside as I get such brain burps as to what to do.


You can see the little cut-off piece of the label at the top.  I think I should have white embossed the text from the Inspirational Sayings to set it off a bit more but then, I was worried that the detail might be blurred. I used  Brilliance Moonlight White ink since I was stamping on black card stock.
