FS101 - Nowhere else to go...

Today we are honoring Judy (JayDeKay) as the Featured Stamper (FS101) over at Splitcoaststampers. Judy has such an amazing gallery that I had a really hard time choosing a card to CASE! She just happens to be a sweetie too and is always leaving the nicest comments on every body's cards :D This is the beautiful card that I found my inspiration in.

I chose to use this amazing quote from the new set called Lift Up Our Hands from Our Daily Bread Designs. I truly wanted to find just the perfect layout for Abraham Lincoln's quote and Judy had it sitting there waiting to be CASE'd in her gallery :D As per all Featured Stamper challenges, I had to change 3 things on this card. I changed the stamp, added some sewing and switched out the pine branches in the corner to add a 3D flower and some leaves and branches.

I just love how this card turned out! It's classy and not too feminine with a slightly vintage feel to it that is perfect for this sentiment. (At least, those were my intentions anyway) lol I would just like to add a little reminder that I am giving away an awesome Our Daily Bread Designs set tomorrow as blog candy!
