April Christmas Card Challenge

Here are my cards for the April Christmas Card Challenge from SCS. Last year when I saw this card, I was so in awe of it... I thought it was simply stunning ( I really wanted to CASE it but did not have the stamps used. Earlier this year I went to an Heirloom's Rubber Stamps and Paper Arts Festival in Duluth, GA, and was elated to find the JustRite stamp set I needed to make the card.

After letting this stamp set sit un-inked on my shelf for the past few months, I finally decided to tackle this card but made a few changes along the way. Her card is so elegant but mine looked plain when I finished the first one using white card stock. I decided to add a little more color to mine by adding ribbon and cutting the pendant and fleur de lis out of SU! Rich Razzleberry card stock rather than white. I also stamped my images using SU! RichRazzleberry ink rather than Violet and I changed the size of the card from a square to an A2.
