The journey of creating begins with a spark from deep within. The artist continues on the loom of life and throughout time a beautiful tapestry takes shape and form from the luscious fibres, brilliant gems and precious pearls we encounter along the way....

We Wish You a Merry Christmas!

 Happy Saturday Folks...  I have posted today a fanciful Christmas card rich with texture, layered with color and shine.  On this card I am featuring the use of the I-Top Bradmaker tool again and this time I have added two of the medium sized brads placed strategically on top of two gold foil embossed medallions that I fashioned from the leftover petals I had saved from the first project I made with the I-top tool.  You can see it when you click the blog candy to comment.  This was a fun card to create with the I-topper and with various spellbinders dies such as Circle Nesties - standard and scallop, the Grand Lace borderability and the In Spades Pendant.  The inside of the card features the Martha Stewart punch around the page Holly leaves set to offset the red flocked Pointsettia and Holly paper on the front of the card. A gold and rich red ribbon sets off the two medallions with brads.  I hope you enjoy....
Comment on the blog candy for a chance to win the prize -- another post on Monday to feature this fantastic must-have tool!  Thank you for your interest in my cards and projects...
