Joy - AHSC #236

Friends from back East were visiting and we got together a little crop on Saturday ... tried to get them to join in this challenge with no attempt ... they were on vacation and didn't need any stress.  So we all enjoyed doing our own thing and I was anxious to do another Christmas Card using the CTMH Beary Christmas paper pack.  Use of the Zip strips from this packet was just what the sketch needed.  One of my favorite flowers for Christmas cards are Poinsettias and since the design paper didn't seen fit for this sketch I pulled out one of my favorite dies using white daisy cardstock, embossed, sponged in gold and after attached added some wink of stella for a little sparkle.  The holly leaves and the sentiment were cut using design papers.  

My card this week as Design Team Member for Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge. Love to see you at this have until Sunday, November 5th to enter your project. The design team reveal for this sketch will be on Wednesday, so be sure to stop by to see the beautiful cards from the rest of the design team and other entrant inspirations for this challenge.  

And stop by every Monday for new sketches. Don't wait for the DT post to create your us up with your artwork.  

The inside of the card was given a border on the bottom, with another small poinsettia on the corner.
