Here is the card closed. The DP is We R Christmas Collection last year. The ribbon is crepe. I didn't have the right color so I used my Copic Marker to color it to match my card. The ornament diecut is a Tim Holtz Alterations die.
I didn't do much to decorate on the inside. I stamped the sentiment and embossed it. Then used a scalloped punch. I used bling on the sentiment. Once again I didn't have the right color so used clear bling and colored with my Copic Marker to match and tied the gold ribbon at the top. It reminds me of a Christmas wreath.
Here is a close up of the inside. The sentiment reads "Christmas is the simple joy of giving." I am entering this card in the ABC Christmas Challenge: O is for Open it up.
Last night on my way home from church I couldn't resist stopping to snap a few pics of the moon. I don't know why I am so fascinated by it. I only had the camera on my cell phone but I was surprised at how well the pictures turned out. I just love God's handy work! I knew of a windmill not far out of my way so I drove there to see if I could get the windmill with the moon in the background.
If only I had thought to park further up the road so my truck wasn't in the picture!
Then I turned around and saw more of God's handy work. Oh, my what a wonderful artist He is and I'm such a sucker for sunsets! I have enough pictures of sunsets to fill a room in my house with scrapbooks full!
Taking photos of sunsets (or sunrises) is kind of like eating potato chips. You take just one! Or at least I can't! And just when I think I'm through I start to leave, look again and the colors have changed. It is so fun to watch the Master Artist paint on the sky like a canvas!
One more shot of the moon before I go home. I just loved this view through the fence.
Thank you for stopping by! Hope you liked my card and hope you got a little inspiration today! Have a good one!
