Merry Monday and CASology

The weather is more like Christmas time than spring time! so here is a card to snub spring! and celebrate the birth of the King of kings and Lord of lords!! : )




These three kings, as well as the borders of my card, were embossed with copper embossing powder on a cream card stock panel.  I stamped the sentiment using a rust colored dye ink, added the ribbon and attached the whole thing to my card face using foam tape.  Easy and elegant : )

My card was inspired by two challenges today.  Merry Monday, where the challenge is to include a ribbon on your card, and CASology where the key word is "Believe".



I wish my blog had feel-a-vision so that you could touch this pretty ribbon.  It is a sparkly champagne color and is one I have horded for years.  LOL  All this time I've saved ribbons that I rarely use on my cards anymore.  I have decided to challenge myself to start pulling out these treasured embellishments and patterned papers that I have saved for the perfect occasion! and actually use them!! : ) Thanks a bunch to the gals at Merry Monday for the challenge and for getting me to share my pretty ribbon.



And thank you to the uber talented team at CASology! for their great challenge too.  I can't think of anything more important to believe in than Jesus!! : ) woo hoo

So.... what happened when my dog went to the flea circus?....He stole the show! LOL...get it?

Have a wonderful weekend and if you happen to have sunshine - please send me some I will e-mail you my address!!

Superb card, Patti. What a beauty. I sure do like your style. And your corny jokes sure do make me smile. Thanks! Wish I could help on the sunshine. Can we make a trade? We'd like a little more moisture in my neck of the woods. Pretty please? Hugs!
