Joy To The World

Oh my - I think it is too early for Christmas Cards....and yet I have made!  This week's Color Throwdown colours are to blame....oh yes.  Gorgeous purples and aquas - yummy!

And that SHINE! The Inkspirational Challenge word this week is shine - so I am right on the money!

I decided to try to do some sponging with my distress inks and made my card base.  I taped my cardstock to my table with removable adhesive just along the edges so that I could show a white border.

After sponging on my base colours, I removed the tape and voila!! A pretty little border!

I then stamped the Globe "holder" from Avery Elle's Joy To The World stamp set, the little wreath and the sentiment.

The wreath has some little berries that I stamped in black and then went over with my silver Zig pen - lots of shiny-ness!

The actual Globe was stamped with Versamark and then embossed with silver embossing powder.  I diecut the circle and then popped it up onto the card.

A few little sequins from Pretty Posh and my Simon Says Card Kit made it come to life - and I am in LOVE with that ribbon - so pretty!
