Joyful Christmas Wishes

I got back into my stamping groove on Sunday and came up with this card for the  Create with Connie & Mary sketch challenge and combined it with the Fab Friday color challenge.

Joyful Christmas Wishes

The colors at Fab Friday are Coastal Cabana, Real Red and Gumball Green and I played up the Cabana as my primary color, followed by red and then green using black and white for my neutrals. The DSP is from the Eastern Elegance pack and for the strip on the side I used the diagonal lines stamp from Gorgeous Grunge to mimic a candy cane.

Joyful Christmas Close up

The ornaments were stamped from the Ornament Keepsakes set and the sentiment is from the Joyful Christmas stamp set. I finished it off with a strip of silver glimmer paper and a (retired) red button.

I really loved the rounder corners on the sketch and like that little detail it adds to the overall card. Thanks for the great sketch and color challenge CCMC and FF!
