From a picture

For this week's challenge for Joan's Touch I got to use something I have hoarded for a long time - since 2003, to be exact.  I had a mini calendar for that year, with a Thomas Kincade photo for each day.  I could not bear to throw-  them out - but I think this is the first I have used.  I cut it with a Spellbinder Majestic Elements oval, and layered regular ovals and a larger Majestic Element - just fit the frame.  That is an embossing folder available at Joans Gardens.  I added some half pearls and a scroll in the corner.  The frame is on cream cs.  The corner die is one I seldom use.  I am practicing more and more with the Majestic Elements set, so they are not so neglected.

I can understand your reluctance to use that gorgeous image. Once it's gone, you can't use it again!! But you did a great job with it. I would say it was worth the wait!

Thanks for joining our Anything Goes challenge at Cut it Up!

Absolutely gorgeous card! I collect Thomas Kinkaid myself and have several of his lithograpghs grace my home's walls. Thank you for playing along with the Dazzling Divas design team this week.
