To Everything There is a Season

This is my thank you card to Margaret for my wonderful 
Christmas gifts.   I can't believe that I forgot to post it!

I used my bronze-gold glittery specialty paper and a single piece of dp from my stash.  The sentiment, from Quiet Fire, is cut out and mounted using Nesties.  I used an offset gate fold card design.

On the interior I mounted thin shimmery gold paper and stamped the sentiment (DJ Inkers) with Versafine Black Onyx and cut it out with another Nestie die.  It may be a little difficult to see the paper-piercing beneath the sentiment.  It stands out well in person.  

This photo shows the detail a little better.  Margaret gave me an Ecstasy paper-piercing template for Christmas (along with  some Dee's Distinctively dies!).  I hope she likes this card!  

I did not use a sketch this time  How unusual for me!!!  

I am entering this in the following challenges:

The Craft Place -anything goes
613 Avenue Create - tic*tac*toe (free/die cut/bling{sparkly papers})
Word Art Wednesday - uplifting sentiment
Timeless Tuesday - all that glitters

Hope everyone has a beautiful Sunday!
Thanks for stopping by.

  1. This is simple and yet super sweet and detailed. I love that you've designed the inside of the card as well as the outside. It really turned out great, and I thank you SO MUCH for sharing it in our challenge this week. I want you to know that I don't take for granted the time it takes to share a card in a challenge, and I'm so blessed that ours is one where you cared to take the time to link it up. I look forward to seeing more of your gorgeous art in our future challenges. May God bless you as you create and share.
