Quotables.....

Well folks, the voting is up for the PC Gallery Idol contest and the entries are nothing short of amazing. Seriously. Everyone did a bang up job!! Everyone got really creative with color and shape!

The challenge was to use a quote on your card. Thanks to Viv Peters, I was able to use Santa and a holiday quote as my focal point! She sent me some lovely Cotton Scraps from Crafty Secrets a few weeks back!

This was MY card! I used the Santa in the Cotton Scraps and trimmed him down to eliminate the saying. I kind of weaved around when I sewed around the edge to give it a little interest and then I started to unravel the edges. Add some pearls in the corner, add a saying and distress the edges, add a loopy brad with satin ivory ribbon and a pearl and you're almost done! The strip of paper that separates the two patterned paper pieces on my card was sewn on as well. DONE!
Here's a close up of the Santa and saying! The saying is from Impression Obsession!
Hope you enjoy! If you want to vote.... click HERE and in the fourth paragraph at the top there is a link to the ballot. After you check the circle and hit done--- You're done! I am "Out To Impress" on the ballot!

Thanks for the votes and support! You guys rock!

Julie, I saw this card yesterday and fell in love with it right away. I have the Santa stamp set from Crafty Secrets that has this image in it. I think it's my all time favorite Santa. Oh my, I'm off to Crafty Secrets to buy it in fabric. Now I'm challenged to paint this instead of doing a monochromtic card. Thank you for the inspiration! And thank you for the link to vote, I just cast mine. Good luck!
