The Holy Family Leaves Bethlehem

Whew look at me 3 posts this week.  I am so excited to be sharing some of the cards I have been making lately.  I am teaching classes at my LSS and haven't posted any of the cards.  Since my classes are finished for the year I am taking some time seeing what is going on in bloggy land.  I found that this card will meet the Challenge at Mo's which is to post your  "Favorite Mo's Card I Made This Year".  I am going to join in the fun at Mo's today.

My image is a stamp I bought at Scrapbooks By The Sea.  It is one of Mo's that Penny Black is selling.  It is called Leaving Bethlehem.  I used a Sizzix pop-up card base to cut it out.  I liked how the base allows the image to stand up and be displayed.  

The papers are from  Little Yellow Bicycle 25 Days of Christmas collection.  They have a beautiful shine and weight for this type of card.  They are so beautiful you don't need any embellishments  I used two pieces of paper for this card and used the flip side of each.  The red snowflake has a red back and the embossed strip on the front of the card shows that.  The gold print and the word paper are flip sides of the same sheet.  I also used this for the sentiment and image mats.

The dies are Spellbinders;  embossing folder from Cuttlebug;  sentiment from Penny Black's Seasons Wishes;  satin ribbon from my stash;  and coloring medium is Copic markers.

I 'm off to see what other challenges I can find for my stash of cards.  Take care of your health during this busy time of year.  Did you know it is a proven fact that coloring is a tremendous stress reduction.  So girlfriend, get coloring and tell anyone interrupting you not to "poke the bear"!

Peace and Love Ya'll!
