Krisha: Lay Claim to Your Fate!

Happy New Year!  I hope everyone is off to a fresh start, or at least getting things caught up.
Sometimes DT work can be a challenge, and I had been wrestling around with what I wanted to do for this week.  I wanted to use my "new" stamps, but they are Christmas, and let's face it I am running on a burn out there! LOL

This started as a test of a new stamp from Rogue Redhead Designs' new Christmas Cheer (RRD 014) plate.  The test image is the spear looking image, once I stamped the image I was in love with it, and I had just used a scrap of cs.  Ok, what now? 

Needing to do something different than Christmas style cards, I chose the sentiment from Rogue Redhead Designs This N That (RRD013) plate and brought it close to the spear.  Masked off a square and shaded it with colored pencil, also adding a shade to the square itself and to the spear, still on the scrap of cs.
The main white square is raised on pop dots and then mounted to the dark brown.  This is all mounted to a card base the same color as the main square.  I added a Fleur-de-lis button with brads in the holes for a finishing touch.

All that procrastinating and this card came together so fast I am still stunned.......LOL
