Christmas "Joy"!

 Hey crafty friends!

I'm back sharing a card for our new challenge at the Double D Challenge Blog.   The challenge theme is "Christmas Joy" and your entry must have the word "Joy" on it.

We'll be choosing three Creative Winners, a Top Creative Winner and the winner of the prize below chosen by random draw...

Woodware Clear Stamp, "Joy to the WORLD"
Cottage Kutz "Joy" Die Cut

Here's a mood board to inspire you...

My Christmas "Joy" creation...


I chose the barn wood floor design and the black/white Buffalo plaid as the card background.  Everything is double matted with added dimension using foam tape.  The spruce branches and red berries made a great focal point topped with a pretty plaid bow.  I used matte gold metallic matted with white for the sentiment to pick up the gold in the bow.

From my stash...
