The Spirit of Christmas

Isn't this one of the most beautiful sentiments? We're doing the Featured Stamper challenge over at Splitcoast today, honoring Itsapassion (Anne). The inspiration for my card today came from this wonderful card of Anne's.

My card base is a standard A2 and over top of that I've layered two pieces of designer paper that have been crinkled, distressed and sponged. Next comes a Spellbinder's Label Thirteen die cut that's been stamped with a JustRite Cling Vintage Label. It too has been sponged. Then, I've sponged a piece of white and black wide ribbon to deepen the color. The sentiment piece is again a Spellbinder's Label Thirteen that's been stamped with the sentiment, sponged heavily and popped up on dimensionals.

My embellishment is a piece of hand-dyed seam binding, a piece of embroidery thread, two punched stars and a small brad.
