Some JOY @ Blackleaf Studios

**This is my second post for the day. if you are looking for FBC post. Click 'Here'**

Hey Everyone,

I am back with another post of the day. And this is for Balckleaf Studios. Its Wednesday, so time for another Stamp It Up over there :).

I created this Christmas card using "Traditional Christmas" Stamp set and let me tell you all the images in this set are great can be used in any creations - ornaments, tags, cards, decorative pieces. So versatile!!

So, without delaying here is my card:

And another look:

I printed out the trees on white CS, sponged the background in different colors of green, doodled on the lines with glitter markers and adorn some stones and rhinestones from Pizzazz Aplenty. Have you noticed, I have also done some embossing :). Okey, lots of embossing :D. The kraft CS is embossed and distressed over with brown ink and same was done with the DP too. The sentiment is glittered rub on.

I am playing in the following challenges with this card:
CPS - sketch#195
Karber Weekly - challenge#16 'sparkle'
Woodware USA - challenge#3 'anything goes'
Crazy Challenge - CCH#43 'on the go'

Wplus9 - Color Cue#10 (I used 'Maile Belles' color inspiration)
EBTKS - challenge#28 'textures' (used dry embossing)

Recipe for this card:

That is all from me today. See you with another creation.
