What an eye catching site Stef chose for the IC Challenge! Wish I could call them up and say "I'll take one of each!" Since I wanted to make a Christmas card, I chose Red Metal for my inspiration. I thought the red & white would work well and I also tried to keep a bit of the helter skelter angles and lines in my die cut frame and holly flourish.
The sentiment is from Our Daily Bread designs. I stamped it and die cut w/ a Spellbinders Labels 18. I used 2 sizes of the same die set to cut a frame, left the two dies in place, and sponged on the same ink. The labels and larger frame were attached to a piece of designer paper then to my 5.50 x 4.25 white card and the holly flourishes were added.
Thanks so much for looking! It will be on my blog in just a bit: The Write Stuff

Julie, this is an ornate and beautiful masterpiece.
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. ~Leo Buscaglia
