Season of Joy

I played with another Christmas card idea that was inspired by Sharon Johnson from "No Time to Stamp." I used the Vintage Cotton Scraps from Crafty Secrets that I purchased from Sharon's blog, plus my Just-Rite Merry Little Christmas set (also purchased from Sharon) to create this card. The papers are from SU! The yellow is So Saffron stamped with a pine bough from my Verve Ornament set from last year. I wanted to keep the vintage look so I stamped the "Joyeux Noel" in my Tim Holz Distress Antique Linen. I think I should have gone a bit darker, but I'm still experimenting. I colored the candles with Copics and made my bow with my Bow Easy. I'm not sure if it pops, but then I guess vintage doesn't really pop. The Just-Rite blog has some wonderful Christmas cards made up by their talented DT and they're really worth the look. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day and week-end..
