This card combines directives from two challenges: the sketch is Mojo Monday 266, and the ODBD challenge for this week is to make a card in white to hail the coming of winter.
The base layer is embossed using a folder that leaves a filigree design around the edges of the rectangle. The rectangular elements from the sketch are embossed using different folders. To make them stand out, one is wrapped in ribbon and bears a pretty ribbon flower. The other embossed design includes flowers which were accented with rhinestones. The central banner is made of vellum and the layers are backed with cranberry paper from Paper Studio to provide a little contrast.
This card weighs a ton! Sometimes our burdens are heavy, but God wants to lift them. We can trust His promise from I Peter.
