As I was sitting watching General Conference (It's a conference from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints - see previous post) I was thinking of not only the resurrection of  Christ but also the birth.  I had this stamp set sitting near my computer and thought of the joyful news the angel brought on that glorious day.  I felt inspired to make this card.  

I have had this set since I started crafting and have done little with it.  I don't know why because I really love this set.  I used Distress Ink on the front using the crinkly stamp and music notes and to color the ribbon on the inside.  I could not find a ribbon that matched in color...even though I have so many ribbons.  I used two different embossing powders that I thought went well together.  I also punched out several snowflakes, glued them together and added some Glossy Accents to shine it up. 

Here is the inside.  I ran the ribbon through the edge punch to change it up a bit.


I hope you enjoyed your visit today and have a Happy Easter!
