"Tres Chic" and "Forever and Always"!

I made this card for the challenge at Skipping Stones Design,
but absolutely HAD to grab my DCWV papers!
I love the way the blue shimmery paper embosses and cuts with the
"Always Here"
stamped butterflies from Skipping Stones Designs!

And the slick black paper from the
"Forever and Always" stack
reflects the light so beautifully!

Without the light reflection:

To balance out the shimmer,
I "fran*taged" some mica and embossing powders on the bottom edge!
(Mixed mica fragments and Aged Aqua Embossing Powder from Stampendous!)
To see how to Fran*tage, watch the video here!

I really like the way this card came out!
A bit of everything that I love!

Glory to God....

Christmas means many different things to different people.
This is a card I made with a wonderful sentiment that I wish we heard more often and felt everyday..

My little  "Caped Angel" sports not only her wings, but an
Action Wobble!

And the sentiment, which is so sharply and clearly heat embossed, is the
"Glory to God" cling stamp.
The pretty scrollwork around the edges is done by heat embossing the

I stamped and colored her again, and then cut it out, leaving off the boots so that when she's attached, her top portion sways and wobbles,
with her feet planted firmly on the ground! 
The sparkle of the "Star Dust Embossing Powder" on the snowflakes gives it an
extra holiday boost! 

For all of these fantastic holiday stamps, visit the STAMPENDOUS store

I know the rest of the design team has tons of ideas and projects using these great stamps and cool tools!
