I combined three challenges with this card. First is the new Mix-Ability challenge to use Resist. You know I love techniques so this was right up my alley!! A Unity music background stamp was stamped with Versamark and embossed with clear ep. The background was then sponged with Bashful Blue and a touch of Chocolate Chip. The dove image from Layers of Color's Christmas Blessings set was stamped with Chocolate Chip and sponged with Bashful Blue and Chocolate Chip. Pearls, twine, a button, lace,seam binding, and canvas fabric finish it off. I used Queen Susan's beautiful Partridge in a Pear Tree card as inspiration ...congrats, Susan for being chosen Queen for the Day!!! I used the same Christmas bird theme and used a music score background but used different stamps,added the blue, and added the ribbon, lace, twine, and pearls. I also used the blue and brown for the Free 4 All challenge!! TFL and have a great day!!

Joan, thank you so much for honouring my reign as Queen for the Day with a CASE of one of my cards! Way to go combining it with two other challenges. I love your card - beautiful background with the emboss resist and a gorgeous peace dove image with great sponging! Congratulations on having the card listed on the Favorites thread!
