This week Splitcoast Stampers' Queen for the Day was Grace (aka:scrapingramma2). Grace has a gallery full of gorgeous heartfelt artwork. I have always admired her cards so this was my feeble attempt at a tribute in her honor.
This card follows Flourishes' blog's Christmas Spirit Challenge for the month of June as well. The inspiration was a beautiful room decorated for Christmas. (See top photo.) I chose the red, silver, and white as my theme for this card.
Also for this week's Stamping Sisters in Christ the Lovely Linda hosted with a Bible passage from Hebrews 11:6. You can visit the blog (on my sidebar) to read her wonderful devotional this week. Linda challenged us to make a card with a heart...could be an image, paper, or embellishment. I chose a tiny heart charm that has the word, "love" engraved on it.
I used the fancy tags and cut them up for the borders of my focal image. The ribbon is offray, and the tiny shimmery flowers are from the wedding department of Michael's. Silver pearls were added, along with the heart charm.
