Luke 2:11

Hello Friends! Are you getting ready for a feast on Thursday? I should be cooking right now, but I just had to make oonnneee mmooorreee card. You know how that is, don't you? :)

Well, with all those recipes calling me, this will be a short post. I used the Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge 150 for the design, and the colors are from the CR84FN Color Challenge #43 of Brown, Tan, and Green.

For the sentiment, I sponged Forest Moss and Walnut Stain Distress Inks around the edge of the rectangle panel, then stamped the sentiment in Forest Moss. After running it through my crimper, and swiping Tea Dye Distress Ink on the ridges, I smoothed it back out and spritzed gold Shimmer Spritz over it.

On the inside sentiment, a little Diamond Stickles on the star gives it sparkle.
Now, off to the kitchen. :)

Thanks for stopping by, and have a glorious day! Happy Thanksgiving!!!
