Joy to the World

I can't believe I actually forgot to post this little beauty! :) Twice. I was meant to post it last night, but as always time ran away with me and BOOM.. before I knew it.. it was way past my bed time. So it's being published this evening instead. I've already posted this on FB and stuff, so you may well have seen it already. :)

I used the gorgeous All Wrapped Up for this card. Traditional Christmas colours with a pop of blue. I've coloured the image using the normal markers and cut her our using the largest circle nestie. It totally dwarfed the card, so I left as much as I could hanging off the edge and cut off the excess before I threaded some gorgeous bright red seam binding from TRG through and tied a cute little bow. I then added a little stocking charm with some turquoise bakers twine and that was that.

The sentiments on both the inside and out are from Amy R sets, and I have punched them out using a decorative labels punch from SU! Some WOC roses and a few moonstone brads and I'd call it done. Oh, and some blobs.. of gold stickles. :)

Little shot of the inside (unwatermarked.. I know..) using some scraps from Eskimo Kisses. Thanks for stopping by, hope you enjoy the rest of your evening.
