Sentiment-Focused at My Craft Spot!

Happy December, my sweet friends! I hope you had a sparkly weekend. :o)

Today begins a fun new challenge at My Craft Spot! This week we want to see creations featuring a sentiment as the focal point. With so many gorgeous stamp sets available, the hardest part is choosing one to design around. :o)

I still have several Christmas blessings to make for charity and my loved ones, so I used this challenge to showcase one of my favorite sentiments from Kimberly's newest release. :o)
Doesn't this greeting fill the heart with joy? It is from the O Holy Night stamp set, which I adore! It so beautifully celebrates the true meaning of Christmas. ♥
I framed the heavenly words with snowflake flourishes from Kimberly's Ornate Labels- Christmas stamp set. The lovely papers are from Pion Design's Silent Night collection, which I've been saving for this perfect sentiment. The heartwarming scene is surrounded in nature's beauty, courtesy of stunning flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.

Pretty crinkle ribbon in Light Denim lies atop a layer of wide lace from The Ribbon Girl. The bow is centered with a Wild Orchid Crafts scalloped pearl and I tucked several Cheery Lynn Mini Fanciful Flourishes (right and left) into my flowers.
A little closer in on the bottom blue paper to better show the pretty snowflakes, which are centered with tiny pearls. The heart pearl and metal filigree corner are also from WOC, while my card base was created with Cheery Lynn's Horizon Square Boutique Stacker Frames. The central focal point is cut out with a Spellbinders Standard Circle (small) and layered upon a Picot Edge Circle.
Thank you for fluttering on by today! I wish you a day of love and joy. :o)
