The Joy of Christmas

Hello and happy Wednesday! A bunch of the Unity peeps do a Wednesday challenge every week and I decided to play along. This week was an inspiration piece. I pulled the colors from the inspiration piece and used the sketch from SCS today, so this is a double challenge card.

The Joy stamp, from Unity, is colored with Koh-i-noor pencils. After coloring, I went over the image with Versa Mark and then heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. Next, I sponged in the background with Certainly Celery.

The blue panel is Bashful Blue, sponged with Not Quite Navy and stamped with snowflakes from The Magic of Chistmas. The green panel is Garden Green, sponged with Garden Green ink and stamped with the branch from Christmas Blessings. The card base is Riding Hood Red.

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget Hip Hop Thursday in the Unity forums tomorrow. I also wanted to give a special thanks to Angela for featuring me on her blog today, for Watch Out Wednesday. It is such an honor!

Have a great day!
