SSSC42 - JOY!

Good morning everyone I hope all of you had a fun Halloween! Today is Sunday which means that its time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch, the card that I have for today uses the stamp set Season of Joy. The card base is Real Red and measures 3 1/2"x 8" which fits nicely into a standard envelope, the bottom portion of my card was embossed using the Petals-a-Plenty embossing folder and the top was stamped with Versa Mark ink using the large poinsettia flower from the set. I stamped the main image in Old Olive and before stamping I used a Real Red marker and colored directly on the rubber stamp so that I could get a two color image. I popped up the snowflake in the center of the JOY and added small pearls to the centers of the poinsettia's.
