JOY to you for the holidays.........


The very talented Julie has picked beautiful colors for this challenge.

PLUM and WHITE
the extra option is FRAMES

Here is the photo inspiration that she has picked.

Now as you can see I have used #3078 TILDA WANTS A HUG. She is in stock at

Magnolia-Licious now. I have also used papers by Magnolia from Magnolia-Licious. The frame is made from the Bon Voyage White Weather Wood paper. I thought that it was very clever so cut up into a frame! The checks are by 7 Gypies.

I have colored my image with my copic markers and as you can see I have made a pennant banner for her to hold with the word JOY that I did cut with my sizzix Girl's Are Weird font. I took some thread and a needle and stitched the hand cut pennants together and popped them up off of the image with foam dots. I have added sheer dot ribbon and flowers from Prima to my card. I have also added perals up in the right hand corner.

I really do love just how this card has turned out. Very very different colors for a Christmas type but I do love it!

I have used my distresed inks on the edges and I have sewn the card together.

Over at the Pixie Cottage Challenge they want you to use a sketch or make a card for special friends & family.. Well I did the special card for a friend.

Then at ABC Challenge they are saying that J is for Jewels and gems. I have added perals to my card for the gems.
Thank you for stopping by today and I do hope that you will find time to join us this time for the Colour Create Challenge.

I hope that you are all having a stress free holiday season. Mine is not stress free just yet. I still have a bunch of shopping to do. But I am getting there.. LOL.

I will be back on Saturday to post my project for Magnolia Down Under.

I hope to see you then!!

This card is absolutely gorgeous and you've really gone that extra mile with it. I've got this stamp but would never have thought of putting pennants between her hands like this (might have to 'case' that idea!) Hugs, Marie xx
