Christmas Joy

Christmas Joy

Once again I found myself running out of time to make my ten Christmas cards for this month. Luckily, I was inspired by today’s color challenge on SCS (CC212: Pink Chocolate Hoods).

The gorgeous Riding Hood Red paper in the Bella Rose DSP package made a nice background for the Illuminations image I wanted to use. I stamped ‘Joy’ with Chocolate Chip ink on Pink Pirouette paper and highlighted the ‘J’ with a VersaMarker. Then I applied Heat & Stick powder to adhere the fine Chocolate glitter to the letter. I cut the image panel into a diamond-like shape and stippled Riding Hood Red ink along the edges.

Thanks for stopping by!
