Sweet 'n Sassy Sneak Peek - Take Two!

Welcome to another day of Sweet 'n Sassy sneak peeks!! Have you been following along all week? If you're interested in all of the peeks, visit the SNSS blog!

Today's card is showcasing this fabulous script background stamp...love it! The name of the stamp is Light of Christmas and will be released tomorrow night at our release party! (Don't know about the release party? Visit our page on Splitcoast!)

For this card, I really wanted to highlight the stamp, although I fully intend to use this as a background behind the cardinal image I share a few days ago! Since I wanted the image front and center, I opted to simply color a die cut square with some Distress Inks...of course leaving a moon shape in the center. (Although wouldn't a star shape have been fab too!) I then dry embossed the background added a small rosette (from MFT), a button (PTI), and twine to the front with a sentiment. This sentiment is from the SNSS stamp set, Primitive Christmas. A hint of blue from grosgrain ribbon and more of those perfect pearls were my finishing touches!

Enjoy and be sure to visit the SNSS blog for the rest of the DT's peeks!

Love the CAS elegance of your beautiful card, Kim. The sponging, the texture, and the rosette perfectly placed give center stage to the script background!
