Ivy Prayers Card

I made this card for the Marianne Design Diva's card challenge "Anything Goes".

I started out by cutting out the image from the MD Vintage Christmas 2 cutting sheet.  I decided to use the square passe partout die as a frame, but needed a backing so cut out a plain square and the passe partout from cream resume paper.  I inked the edges of the plain square with tan dye ink.  I die cut the ivy (CR1253) out of green cardstock and a rectangle of red paper that I stamped with a french script background stamp.

When it came time to put the card together I decided to turn the plain square so it would make a kind of star double framing the image and then glued everything down on a base of cream cardstock.

It was meant to be a summer card, but looks more like a Christmas card (despite the use of ivy rather than holly).
