Peace, Joy, Love, and Flower Soft!!!

Hi, everyone!!  Though it still felt like summer in Indiana yesterday, we all know that winter is so very, I gave in and made a wintery card to help me get ready!  The sentiment is from the "Perfect Gift" set by Our Daily Bread designs and the image is a pre-printed card topper by Flower Soft (link below).

I will be submitting this card to a couple of challenges:
The Stampin Sisters in Christ Challenge is about Peace, so this sentiment was perfect;
the Shining the Light "L.E.A.F. Recipe" Challenge over at the Our Daily Bread designs blog is to use elements on your project which start with three of the four letters....L = lamp-post, E = embossing (dry embossing on die-cuts), F = Flower Soft.

I can't say enough about how much I love Flower Soft products!  Their beautiful pre-printed card toppers save sooooo much time, plus....they're just plain gorgeous!!  This beautiful light post scene is from the Vintage Christmas kit, which has many varieties and sizes of 'card toppers' which can be cut out with Spellbinder find out how to cut out the card toppers with the coordinating Spellbinder dies, check out the tutorial I did for Our Daily Bread designs HERE.

Card 'Ingredients':
Stamps: Our Daily Bread designs 'Perfect Gift' and 'Luke 2:11' (background);
Cardstock: Stampin Up Always Artichoke;
Designer paper: Memory Box 'Tinsel' and Card Topper from the Flower Soft / Spellbinders Vintage Christmas Kit ;
Accessories: Stamp-a-ma-jig stamp positioner (to stamp the sentiment straight), Spellbinders Scalloped Ovals and Floral Ovals, SEI ribbon, Flower Soft 'Russett' and 'Polar White', Flower Soft Ultrafine 'Pine' and 'Sage', Flower Soft Glue, Zva Creative Pearls, Bow Easy, Foam Tape;

Oh Angie, this card is just beautiful. It's such a warm and cozy card, and the dimension from the Flower Soft is beautiful.

This would be so pretty framed too.
