Christmas JOY!

This card is for today's SCS Feature Stamper Challenge (FS131)! Congratulations, Joanne!!! It was hard choosing a card. Here is the one I chose. I love the layout and design of Joanne's card as well as the Christmas theme. I kept the general layout and modified according to my larger size card. I change the colors and went with a little nontraditional colors instead.

I am using Flourishes All that Glitters and Poinsettia Boxwood sets. I stamped my background using one of the pine sprigs from the All that Glitters set in versamark and embossed with transparent kaleidoscope embossing powder. I love the subtle multicolored shimmer. I also used the versamark pad directly to the enchanted evening cardstock and embossed with the same embossing powder to get the rich shimmer for my corner and snowflake punch. I stamped the sentiment JOY in versamark and embossed in gold. I softly sponged the edges of the oval panel with ranger old paper and antique linen inks.

I colored using Flourishes Copic Color Collection in in Sky and Tiger Lily. I used Flourishes Classic White cardstock.I finished my card with satin ribbon and Flourishes Finishing Touches gold slide.
