Joy!


I had a rummage through my bag of leftovers and scraps to see if I could make something for the challenge at Shopping our Stash. I found a die-cut (Silhouette) bauble with the middle missing and a scrap of card with a background I made with metallic marker pens and water, Also some sentiments - I chose the Joy one because it went with the challenge at Fusion .

I stamped a reindeer ( old magazine freebie) onto the background, put it behind the bauble and trimmed it. I used patterned paper from an Authentique pad and smudged white ink and embosing powder on the edges. I added twine and a bell.

As well as Shopping our Stash and Fusion, I'd like to enter:
