JOY TO THE WORLD with Japanese Tilda

It's Thursday and time for the
You are going to love these colors that our very talented Liz has choosen this time around.
Red, Gold, White or Off White
Optional extras: Christmas or Oriental

It's Challenge #53 and here is the inspiration picture.

Our sponsor this week is Michelle's Scrapbooking.

I have used #227 Japanese Tilda from Magnolia-licious Store.

As you can see I did get both of the extra options on my card! I have used Kaiser Craft paper, Canston and Bazzill cardstock. If you look close you will see that I used my Cuttlebug Swiss dot folder on the gold paper. I have added some beautiful trims, gold domes, gold stars, gold photo corners a few prima FLowers and some tulle. I have used some Glam by Tattered Angels on my tulle bow so give it some sparkle. The joy to Wolrd is chipboard by K&Company. I have also sewn my card. The coloring has been done with my copic markers and watercolor pencils.

I really do need to get more practice with the black hair. Not so great with that!! LOL...

I hope you will find the time to join us this challenge. It a great way to get into the Christmas card making!! Christmas will be upon us before we know it.

I was wondering if any of you are having problems with blogger? I write my posts up in another program and then copy and paste it to blogger but for some reason it won't let me this past week!!!!!!!!!!! uuhhhgggggggggggggggg!!

It just drives me nuts!!! I also find that I can't get on some of your blogs. :o( It just shuts down!!! boooo hooooooo

Thanks for stopping by today..

big Thursday hugs,

Janiel
