Heartfelt Creations Chateau Gate Collection Stained Glass Window


Greetings Bloggers and welcome to my second edition of the Chateau Gate Collection creations for Heartfelt Creations.  Today I want to show you something that was inspired by several of the sweet vintage churches that exist here in my county in Georgia.  I had the pleasure of taking a tour one Saturday of some of these churches.  Churches that are so far in the country that they had sconces on the walls and oil lamps to light the church.  It was so beautiful and amazing.  The beautiful stain glass left an impression on me!
To create the stained glass I used Martha Stewart Micro Beads.  I just love miro beads.  You can see in this close up how it looks.

 Here is a close up of the pretty Spellbinders Rose creation flowers.  I love making these roses.  So fun!

Carol, your card is so wonderful! The details make you focus on both the sentiment and the imagery - it is like a mini-devotional. I love the 42,000 layers and details. I need to keep Crystal away from this one too. LOL! We do have wedding colors (subject to change) - purple and teal - how fun is that? Hugz!

Carol, I'm in love with this card!!! Your precut sets and all the products used here are just divine. I would have loved to have been on that tour with you. I LOVE old churches and take photos of them when I go on trips. Your creativity shows no bounds..have I said that before? It's worth repeating. :-)
