New TSOL for Christmas!

There are some wonderful new sets available from the {stamps} of life!  My favorite of the four is called includes seven beautiful sentiments about the real Reason for the season!

Memory Box's Mistletoe designer paper made the perfect backdrop for these beloved Christmas verses.  I  took an ultra clean and simple approach, using only a few embellishments to add impact.  A few strategically placed dew drop "berries" and an elegant silk bow bring an air of simple elegance to the first design.  

My second card is a window card that allows the verse to peek through from the inside.  When the card is closed, it looks as though the sentiment is adhered to the outside of the card, but when opened, a lovely layer of musical score is revealed underneath that supports the music theme of the sentiment.  The window is embellished with gold-edged velvet leaves and a gold bow.
