J is for. . . .

you guessed it - JOY!!  The Simon Says Monday challenge theme is really a fun one this week.  Here is my card:



I have a lot of Joy stamps and many sentiments including the word joy, too.  So, it was only natural for me to use one for this challenge.  The stencil is from Crafters Workshop and the stamps are from Impression Obsession.  Distress inks were used for the background.  The dew drops have been sitting on the shelf in a pretty little bottle for years, so I decided to use a few more of them.

Since I used gold embossing on this card, I am also sending it over to the SSS Wednesday challenge, which is to emboss it.

Still catching up from my trip to Colorado.  Glad to be home and hope to make more cards this week and visit your blogs as I find time. 

Have a great week.
