I've missed a couple of the Festive Friday Challenges - and I was determined not to miss it again! This is the beautiful inspiration photo:
So many pretty things to focus on - first I thought pinecones, then snowflakes, then white frame and wreath, I toyed with the idea of branches with silver balls, or a roaring fire..... but then
The little bunny won out! I love the stitched bunny and bow from Lil' Inker Designs - I guess she's not just for Easter anymore!! I cut her out of a brushed gold card stock. I also used (for the very first time!) my long ago purchased and stored away Impression Plate from the Luxe Letter Press Market Kit from PTI.
I stamped the NOEL from the Nutcracker Sweet set by Waltzingmouse in Brilliance Gold Ink next to my bunny. The bunny and bow are both popped up on foam tape.
On the inside I stamped this verse from an old wood mounted rubber stamp I have:
In the stillness of snow falling
In the glow of candlelight
In the beauty of frosty windows
May peace be yours tonight.
Perfect for my little bunny, I think.....
