Joy to the World

Happy Hump Day! Today's card is a little out of the ordinary for xmas...purple is not a typical xmas color but I thought maybe with the gold I could make it look Christmasy. :) And my stamp...I really struggled with coloring it cause of the solid area...if I used red ink...the whole Santa would have been in red...didn't really want that so I thought what about just leaving it black and white? So that is what I did and added some Diamond Stickles to Santa's suit to give the card some bling and a Stardust GellyRoll gold glitter pen was used on the stars to brighten them up. I used a Martha S punch on my center layer and stamped the snowflakes using a Studio g stamp I had purchased from JoAnn Fabrics last winter. Of course, you know me...I HAD to add some embossing...I used the Sizzix Dots embossing folder. This was a fun card to make and I may have gotten carried away on my layers but I do like how it turned out. Well off to clean my house for Thanksgiving! Hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving...I know I am very thankful for my blogging friends...bless you for stopping by!
