CCC #23.... Gift

{for my Shining the Light post, please scroll down.}

Hello!!  I'm back with my card for this week's CASology challenge.   The cue word this week is "gift".   You can find all the details for the challenge here and our guest designer is the uber talented Hannelie.   Don't forget... CASology is looking for some new team members.  You have until December 15th to get your application in.




Another very simple card from me this week.  When I saw the cue word I had only one idea in mind and that was to use a sentiment from the Hero Arts set Greatest Gift because you see to me Christmas really is only about the greatest gift ever given, Jesus.  As simple and uncomplicated as that.  I also didn't want to use a traditional Christmas color combo so I went instead with navy blue.  I stamped the sentiment toward the bottom of cardstock and then stamped the star (from the companion Hero Arts set Heavens Rejoice) above the sentiment as you see.  A clear rhinestone was added to the center.   I also used my SU! Ticket Corner punch to punch the corners for a bit more interest.   

Thanks for stopping by... make sure you check out the cards from the rest of the design team: Melissa, Tracey, Jen, Ardyth and this week's guest designer Hannelie, Can't wait to see what you come up with using this week's cue word!

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white; SU! Night of Navy; Stamps:  Hero Arts; Ink:  SU! Night of Navy; Rhinestones:  Stampin Up!; Punch:  SU! Ticket Corner punch
