Christmas Blessings!

This card is for this week's SCS Sketch Challenge(SC243)! I am using ODBD Joy to the World stamp set. I colored the image with copic markers.

I am trying to make a few Christmas cards a week now. It was so nice last Christmas to break of my already made stash and sit and decide which one went where. I love doing a mixture of different ones.

I used so saffron and elegant eggplant cardstock. I used a SU texturz plate and a cuttlebug ef to create some visual interest. I sponged all of the so saffron pieces with so saffron ink. I added a MS border punch and an EK Success border punch.

I finished my card with a little ribbon bow and layered 1/4" circle punches with gold pearls.

Here is the picture of the inside of the card.
