Believe

DSCF9526

My sweet friend Wendy is hosting the Merry Monday challenge today and I just had to play along!  Here’s the fun challenge:

I pulled out an old faithful Christmas set called Peaceful Wishes and went to work.  I fussy-cut the pine cone which was stamped in Cajun Craze and popped it up after glittering it up with some orange glitter.  I also used some Heat & Stick powder to add orange glitter to a glimmer brad for my sentiment, which is from an older PTI set called Believe.  It was cut out with a Word Bubbles die, with the “hanger” cut off:

This also incorporates the Try Stampin’ on Tuesday sketch:

as well as the Kraft Journal’s challenge to use ribbon or twine.  Here’s mine:

Any questions, shoot me an email, gotta scoot!

Knitting needles and one of those big horns (Nance, I can’t remember what the name of it is!!!)…..the endless imagination of 4 year olds!

Hi LeAnne,
Thank you for playing along at the Kraft Journal. I love the subtle use of the twine on this beautiful card.

Love the rustic look to your card and never would have thought of using Cajin Craze for the pinecones, but have to say that I really, really like it! Great card LeAnne! :0)
