Joy To The World



December has arrived, and it's time for a new set of challenges at Happy Little Stampers

The December Christmas Challenge is Anything goes with an optional twist of stencil. 

I went for the twist in a new-to-me way. I used the Inked Stencil Dry Embossing technique that you can check out HERE. For the background, I inked the Hero Arts Festive Star and Bauble stencil with Delicata Golden Glitz ink and ran it through my Cuttlebug. The sentiment is done with Winnie & Walter's In A Word: Joy Cutaway and PTI Luxe Gold Adhesive paper along with part of a sentiment from Impression Obsession Clear Stamps Peace On Earth set.

The winner for this challenge will receive a $20 coupon to spend at the Happy Little Stampers shop! Check out all the details HERE.

Please head on over to the Happy Little Stampers December Christmas Challenge and check out the gorgeous creations by the Design Team. Soak in some inspiration and create a holiday card and link it up in the gallery for a chance to win!

I'm also playing at:

ANY holiday card can be linked up.

Beautiful background! The idea that the background and sentiment were in one color is great. It looks as if your sentiment emerged from golden tangles, as if it grew out of them. A great card.
