Ave Maria

I should take a better picture for you, as I took this one last night after completing this Ways To Use It Challenge over at SCS. If I did, it would be another few days before you saw it, because I don't enjoy taking pictures of cards at all! The challenge was to use only one word on your card. I went for this set, and this word of great import: PEACE. This is from Artistic Outpost's stunning Ave Maria plate. I embossed all the stamped images in my favorite gold, SU!'s Gold Glory. I surrounded Mary with beautiful TINY glass micro beads. These are about half the size of the beads I used on the spiders a few posts ago-they are SO pretty! They also stick better, I didn't have to add any glitter to fill in the holes. I stuck them down with Judikins Diamond Glaze. They stuck instantly and seem to be down for good. The paper is Basic Gray Blitzen, and the ribbon is BG hang Ten. The other sparkly border is Gold Stickles. I never think to use Gold unless I'm making a Christmas card.

Well, I didn't find the electric blanket last night, and I'm still cold! It's parent night tonight at the football game, and as Ross is a senior, I guess I'll be out freezing and probably crying liker a big idiot tonight. Dang! I have no waterproof mascara, either!

Wowza Carla...your cards are sooo very detail oriented! Sheesh, you make me feel like the lazy stamper that I really am :)

Oh sista, I'm a big cry baby...I'm a mess at movies and even Extreme Home Makeover's...LOL. You better pop on a hat if you're going to be hanging out in the cold watching a football game...

Have a super weekend!!!

HI Carla- beautiful image, beautiful card! Althouhg, I have to say the layered punches with "Peace" remind me of the Batman symbol! LOL :-) Probably cuz dh and I just watched Batman Begins a few days ago. Thanks for the reminder to try out layering up some of the fab SU! punches to add interest to a design.
