Joyous Noel

2012 Faves
 ; 

Had this Fab Friday sketch stashed away and decided to use it today so I could use a bit more of my Freckled Fawn washi tape.   Love the pattern on this one :)  Not exactly Christmas colours with all the black, but hopefully the red and green balance it off a bit.


Great fun using this PTI holly die I got earlier in the year and have been waiting to use for a long time LOL!  Crimped the leaves for a bit of texture and added the snowflake and button to help spice things up a bit as I don't have the knack for making CAS shine on its own.  Still a work in progress. That's what I love about this hobby - so many ways you can stretch yourself and grow as a card maker!

Love this sentiment from Verve's new Christmas release.  Joy is one of my  favorite Christmas words and  having it jump off the sentiment is perfect!


Have a joyous day!
