Hello everyone!

I am here with the Christmas Card Challenges and we have a new challenge and it is a "Color and picture Challenge". You can  use the picture here for your inspiration:

Here is my card:

My card is an A2 card, I am using the Memory Box Calozonia Frame Die. The sentiment is from Penny Black Yuletide Wishes.  I used distress inks for the background, I stamped the sentiment with Stampin Up ink Night of Navy, and added some enamel dots.

Hello everyone,

I am here with Joy Clair featuring the newly release Color by Faith bible journaling set called "God's Army".  This is a wonderful set if you know someone who is serving in the military or any kind of services that they wear a uniform.  If you have not visited the Joy Clair blog, please stop by to see all the wonderful designs, you will definitely be inspired!

Also, there is plenty of time to join in on the monthly challenge over on Joy Clair.  The theme is always anything goes and our Design Team uses a photo inspiration to create their project that you can use too if it inspires you.   If you would like to join the fun, the details are here.  As always, you will have a chance to win a $25 Gift Certificate to the Joy Clair Store

Here is my card.  This month theme for the design team is masking.  I will tell you how I created my card below.  
How I put my card together:

1.  A2 card 4 1/4 x 5 1/2,
2.  The black cardstock measures 4 x 5 1/4,
3.  The top piece of cardstock measures 3 7/8 x 5,
4.  I stamped the camouflage pieces on the background of my cardstock,

I stamped the boots and the tags using my Misti, I stamped the boots on some wide masking low tack tape I have and masked the boots I stamped on my cardstock, I then stamped the tags.  If you don't have low tack masking tape, you can also use post it notes, they work well too.

5.  I stamped the tags on the side of the boots to make it look like some of the tag is behind the boot.

6.  I removed the masked piece of paper and here is the results!

7.  Finished my card off by adding the sentiment.
