…and the Sun…robed thee in his day from head to feet…

What better way to celebrate the new year than with a gorgeous goddess from Simply B Stamps, the one on my card is Persephone.

I’m sending this card to a former colleague for her birthday so I’ve kept it very nice and I have several new things on it.  I opened up two new dies from Joy! Crafts to make the frame around Persephone and the designer paper is new, well, the collection is old but I found some online recently so it’s new to me.  With my new things and my nice theme I am entering this over at Naughty or Nice.

To make up my card I’ve followed the current sketch at Sketchy Colors, which I flipped. With all my layers being triple matted and the die cut frames I didn’t even need any embellies.  The card, however, still is lovely and heavy, there’s three pieces of cardstock and one whole sheet of designer paper (I line the insides of my cards and again did multiple mats) in this card and you can feel it.  Love that about handmade cards and given the size (6x6”) it was going to cost more than a standard stamp anyway so figured I might as well load up the layers!

As I have multiple layers I am also entering this in the current challenge over at The Crafting Café.
