May Your Spirits Be Bright

This is my second post today. Scroll down for my Dynamic Duos post.  This card is for Merry Monday #92 - Use red, vanilla, kraft and chocolate with ribbon, and Viva la Verve Week 3 sketch challenges.  Here's my card:
The card base is Crumb Cake, a mat of Chocolate Chip and the Very Vanilla panel is embossed with SU Snowburst EF.  The chocolate doily is from SP Vintage Lace Motifs.  The DSP is from SU Be Of Good Cheer (retired) with Cherry Cobbler mats. The sentiment from Verve's Bright Spirits is stamped in Choc. Chip ink on Very Vanilla CS.  The doves from the same set are also stamped in Choc. Chip ink on Very Vanilla.  I sponged some Crumb Cake ink over them, and used my Sakura Clear Glitter pen for some dimension.  I added some faux stitching with my Choc. Chip marker, matted it with Cherry Cobbler and mounted it with foam dimensionals.  I used SU Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding Ribbon. 
You can see the glitter on the doves a little better in this photo.  It is really pretty IRL.

 
Thanks for stopping by.
Happy Stamping,
JoAnn
