I have a lot of "Joy" stamps. In fact, I have a four shelf unit that is full of them. And, now there are several more clear/cling sets that include them.
I decided to use this beautiful Penny Black stamp for a few Christmas cards, paired with the sentiment from Hero Arts. I also used some patterned paper from the 6x6 MME Merry Little Christmas pad. It has some very pretty pastel prints in it. The scalloped die is from PTI. I colored the image with Prismacolor pencils and added some Stickles glitter. The red and white baker's twine and tiny red gems were all the embellishment it needed. I knotted the ends of the twine - a trick I've seen Julie Ebersole use several times. (love that gal!)
Sending this over to Simon Says Stamp for their anything goes challenge.
Have a great weekend!
