"Sally's ABCs": Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week

Good evening, everyone!!  Welcome back to day 2 of the October Lawn Fawn inspiration week!!  Tonight we are showcasing a new alphabet set called "Sally's ABCs".  This alpha set is perfect for Christmas and holiday cards...it just has that certain feel to it!!  It also works really well with the other alphabet stamp sets in the Lawn Fawn collection, as you will see on my card!!

I did create my card for some challenges, and those will be listed at the bottom of the post.  Here is what I came up with using "Sally's ABCs" stamp set!
 "Jesus is the Reason" supplies:
Cardstock: Bazzill Basics (red) & Papertrey Ink (vintage cream)
Paper: My Mind's Eye (Lost & Found Christmas 6x6 paper pad)
Stamps: Lawn Fawn (Sally's ABCs and Smitty's ABCs sets)
Ink: Clearsnap (Pigment: evergreen, alabaster)
Distress Ink/Blending tool: Tim Holtz
Vintage Image: Crafty Secrets
Flowers/Vine: Prima Marketing
Lace: craft supply
Jewel: Doodlebug Designs
Doily die: My Favorite Things
Diecut Machine: Cuttlebug by Provo Craft 
Sandpaper

Instructions:  Make card from red cardstock and ink the edges.  Distress ink a strip of lace and then wrap around the bottom of the card.  Cut green damask paper slightly smaller and sand the edges.  Diecut the doily from cream cardstock, distress ink the edges and adhere to the bottom of the paper block.  Sand the edges of the vintage image and adhere to the top of the doily.  Adhere the silver vine to the right side of the image, then cover the bottom with a floral accent.  Add a jewel to the middle of the flower.  Cut a banner edge to cream cardstock, distress ink the edges and stamp the sentiment to it.  Adhere right below the vintage image, with the right side tucked into the flowers.  Adhere the entire damask block to the card front using foam adhesive to finish.  

Be sure to check out what the rest of the Lawn Fawn gals have come up with using "Sally's ABCs"!! ♥♥♥
