Our QFTD36 is Maxell. I chose this card of hers for my inspiration:http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...;ppuser=120150
I used a page from an old Christmas songbook I got from a local thrift store. The song is Joy to the World.
I stamped on it with a PTI stamp, added some embellishments, distressed the edges, sewed around the edges, added dazzling diamonds,chalked behind the stamp image to give it depth and one of Kittie747 bows.
This song always has been a favorite of mine. And this part of the song reminds me of how loudly my dad would sing when he got to this part. I love memories like that.

This is a gorgeous card. I love the stamped image and slight sponging - it's beautiful. Often times, a card will remind me of a funny memory and I smiled when I read your tidbit about your Dad and this song.

Bartonucci, what was it you pm'd me about ... something about not liking your card. Surely, you jest. This is a fabulous card. Your stitching and stamping directly onto the dp was a phenomenal thing to do. Love the dazzling diamonds too. Ooooh la la, you've gone and created a genuinely beautiful holiday card!

What a wonderful memory of your Dad - albeit singing loudly - that must have been his favorite part of the carol!!
Fantastic inspiration from the CASE to use an actual BG from the hymnal - makes the gears start turning here for future reference!! Love the stickles and your stamping direct to the BG and sponging looks wonderful!! "Kittie's bows are so Fabulous! Love this card!!
Congrats to Maxell - I am happy to pass the crown to such a sweet deserving stamper like you!!! - Enjoy being in the spotlight this week!
