I loved this stamp set when I first saw it. I started out by copying the example from the annual catalog, but I didn't have the same designer paper for the angel background. I used something similar, then an ink smear caused a cover up that I wasn't happy with, and the result was just eh. Not to be defeated, I made another version, which I liked better, but then I decided to try one last time. Sooooo the third card is the one I like! The gold embossing and rhinestones were just the right amount of sparkle.
Stamp set: Joyful Nativity
Cardstock and inks: whisper white, cherry cobbler, memento tuxedo black, very vanilla, Versamark
