PDCC #111 ~ A Child is Born


Isn't this photo beautiful! The Play Date Cafe is having one of their fun color splash challenges...black, white and a splash of teal.  I had made this card for one of my husband's co-workers and his family. And as luck would have it, it was a perfect match for this challenge!


I just love this stamp of the Three Kings on their journey to Bethlehem it's by Stampendous. And the little sentiment stamp is from Rosie's Roadshow. Now I know that the prize this time is Spellbinder's labels 18 and I have used my Spellbinder's labels 18 largest die here. If by some slim chance I where to be chosen a winner; my SIL: aka stamping buddy would be tickled pink to have a set of her own!

Thanks for popping in to visit! ~Lisa

The silhouette stamp is just beautiful! I have Label 18 too and it is my favorite of all Labels by Spellbinders:)

Lisa said...

Beee-u-ti-ful! I don't have that particular die, but it is quite pretty! It definitely adds a lovely flair to this card :) simple and beautiful scene, Lisa!
Merry Christmas!

Ohhhh, Lisa--it's gorgeous! Your shading is masterly, and the stamp looks great in that die cut. And that is gorgeous background paper too.

Lisa, don't you love a happy coincidence? So glad you were able to enter this in our Splash challenge this week.

I like the background paper very much. If you get a sec, can you let me know who it's by? THanks!

I hope everyone at your house is healing or all healed up (aka hubby and Max). And how about you? Are you ready for Christmas?

Thanks for playing with us at the Cafe this week, my friend!
