Such beautiful details on your card with the sewing and the piercing - can't figure out how you did it but it looks good.

Audrey Ann said...

Happy New Year Chris!! Your cards are so beautiful this month - as always! The first is so beautiful it takes my breath away every time I see it. Your colors and design and the pop of black are beautiful. I also love your second - so soft and pretty, and it really shows off the new Faithful Fish Pattern die and framed Psalm. Thank you for all the inspiration throughout the year!
Hugs and Blessings,
Audrey
