I love it when my eyes zero-in on a "WOWZA!" card! The particular WOWZA card that nearly yanked my eyes out of their sockets was this Keep My Lamp Burning beauty by Kathie Bailey:
I love the masculine feel to her card. The grosgrain ribbon and ribbon loop didn't take away from the manliness which isn't an easy task to accomplish. The sponging around the edges gave the card a subtle glow as well as an 'old world' feel. Kathie's layering and choice of decorative papers were absolute perfection as the lighthouse and scripture stood out majestically!
Thank you for creating such a beautiful card, Kathie!
