JOY!



It's Friday!
 I think everybody loves Fridays..I know I sure do.... the kick off to the weekend. And this weekend I get to do more stamping with friends. I can't wait!

I made this card for a couple of challenges. 





Also:



CAS colours and sketches


Once again, I used all dies on the front of my card, and stamped the sentiment on the inside. I can't seem to get over my fascination with dies! I think I need to challenge myself to make a card WITHOUT a die. Oh well, I sure have fun with dies, and that's all that counts anyway, isn't it?

 I used SU's" Joy"... from the Wonderful Wreath bundle as the focus of the card. I just love foil paper, and gold is so pretty with this die. The star is also SU, and cut out in red glitter paper. I punched out a Martha snowflake, and then backed it all on a pierced banner die from My Favorite Things.The Holly leaves are from Sizzix. I embossed a panel in crumb cake for the background. One more Christmas card ready to add to the growing stack!

Have a happy day everybody!

  8. Such a great card Laurie. I really like the combination of elements. The red glimmer star is great on it's own, but teamed up with the beautiful "Joy" die cut it simply looks stunning. Thanks for sharing.
