SSCC#9

Have you ever been stumped as to the layout of a card...this one had me stumped something terrible! I colored the images last night and couldn't figure out a sentiment that would be most fitting and the layout, so I just put it aside and went to bed!!! This morning I was straightening my stamp area and BAM it hit me!  A sentiment from Holiday Sentiments fit perfectly and it created the perfect square to keep the card balanced. :o)

I made this card for the Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge which was to create a projects with a nativity scene. I bought these stamps over 2 years ago at the Enchanted Cottage (some of you will know of where I speak...).  The image stamps are from Great Impressions and the sentiment is from Creative Clear Stamps.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful weekend! I am off with my daughter for a girls' day that involves a late lunch at Olive Garden and shoe shopping. :o)
Blessings,



Card Deets:
Stamps: Great Impressions, Holiday Sentiments
Cardstock: All Spruced Up, VV and Basic Grey Wassail

Your card is gorgeous!!! I have to many times went on to bed because I couldn't figure out what to do next, it's like a good night sleep helps our creative juices flow LOL.

The Enchanted Cottage . .. sounds like a fun place to visit! I have stamps like that, I've purchased them and they're waiting in the cupboard to see ink some day. Glad you finished your layout, looks nice. Thanks for participating in the Stampin' Sisters in Christ challenge this week.
