Early Christmas Joy~caardvarks Sketchfest Wednesday


Day four of caardvarks Sketchfest...and I made it!  Three more days to go, but its been so much fun!  I did another card today using up "leftovers", which was my plan for this week.  This card has lots of texture, though it is hard to tell from the photo......the background paper has been embossed with an ornament eb folder.  I did this last year, but the paper was too busy for it to show much, so a perfect way to use it for this layout as most of it is covered.  I also used up a scrap of  green foil paper and it was textured with a texture plate that had ornaments on it as well.
I paper pierced around my ornament and the edge of the paper it was stamped on, you can't tell by the photo either, but it really "pops" the ornament out!
The inside of the card is stamped "Seasons Greetings"....I used a new set from the Stampin'Up! Holiday mini called "Four The Holidays"....I love this set, as it has 4 greetings in different text, it will get alot of use this season!  Other statmp sets used were Loads of Love for the trees, and Delightful Decorations for the ornament.....SU has a matching punch for this set and rub-ons, making it very versatile!

I am so inspired, I think I am going to do a few more challenges today!!
