Christmas Blessings

Hello everyone, and Happy Thursday to all! So today I just had to share this beautiful Christmas sentiment that I used on my card from the NEWLY released stamp set called "Luke 2" from The Project Bin! Awww I just LOVE designing Christmas cards, they are so much fun! Cant wait to share some more with you all soon. :)
So on this card I kept the sentiment simple , by just stamping it in Distressed ink Black Soot. Love that using the Mini Misti tool helps to get that perfect look on your sentiments. Omgosh this is the best tool ever for stamping! I love how if you missed an area, you can just stamp directly over it again and again, or if you want a deeper darker look, the same applies. Ok so enough about the mini misti and on to my card for today

Card base-
 ream card stock cut at 5 1/2" x 11"  and then scored at 5 1/2" to create my card base.
Layer 1- 5 1/4" x 5 1/4" bazzill then dp is 5" x 5"
Layer 2-  4 3/4" x 4" then design paper is 4 1/2" x 3 3/4"
Layer 3- 2 3/4" x 1 3/4" for the card stock, then design paper is 2 1/2" x 1 1/2" sentiment stamped in Black Soot using the Mini Misti tool(LOVE THIS)
Layer 4- flowers from JustRite Papercraft, and the branches are from Martha Stewart. I used the glue gun to take those down to the card, then the flowers were put together using a liquid glue.

BOW- the big bow was made using Really Reasonable Ribbon Shimmer Satin, and is 2 bows placed on top of each other.
