Joy to the World

I've got another Christmas card for you today. The card uses last week's sketch from Paper Play challenges and it's also my second submission for their current challenge, which is to use your favorite embellishment, which of course is buttons for me. This card also qualifies for the color challenge at JUGS, the challenge at Stamp Something for bling, the challenge at Saturday Spotlight with Hidden Potential wants to see a scene, ruffles for Moxie Fab World, bling for If the Shoe Fits, Alma of Dancing in Pajamas is the hostess for this week's TCP challenge which is to use buttons, and Die Cut Dreams has a theme of winter wonderland. Wow, that was a lot of challenges. But hey, if the card fits? LOL.


***Supplies***
Patterned paper: Unknown

Stamps: CTMH Snow Friends and Christmas Scripts
Other: Nesties, PTI buttons and ribbon, Prisma glitter
If you look close, you can just make out the bling on hill that the darling snowman is sitting on. I went over the area with my glue pen and then sprinkled the glitter on. I also had a fabulous time making the ruffled ribbon, which I've seen a lot of in blogland as of lately. I'll definitely be doing that again.
Devin and the kids have today off from school. I think they're calling it a fall holiday. I really do think I got into the wrong profession as I definitely could use a fall holiday but instead, I'll be going back to work. Well, I hope your Monday is fabulous.
Pin It!

Very cute card! I love the little snowman image that you used! Great job with the Just Us Girls Color challenge! :) TFS

Jeanne said...

I've got to say I'm very impressed that you were able to combine so many challenges. I have to ask, does it take long to coordinate the challenge to the card? Or do you make the card and see which challenge it will fit? I'm honestly trying to wrap my brain around the logistics of this, although I don't know why, since I haven't participated in challenges. LOL

However it gets done, this is a fantastic card! Love that snowman and the sparklies! Great job and thanks for sharing.
