Joy to the World

I am soooooo far behind on my Christmas cards!! I was trying to keep up with them by making 10 each month, but I have failed miserably!! My goal is to keep them simple so I'm not spending extra on postage. I also like to use non-traditional colors. This one uses two PaperTrey Ink sets, Peaceful Poinsettia and Signature Christmas. Colors are Cameo coral, Pretty in pink, Purely pomegranate, and White. The DSP is Raspberry Tart - not one of my favorites so I wanted to use it up! Love the loopy punch by Martha Stewart - I got it in a combo pack that also included the loopy corner punch! In the center of the poinsettia I added yellow liquid pearls. I simply couldn't let it go without some sort of bling, therefore I added the rhinestones.
I'm trying to do better keeping up with my blog. I've been busy with my Clear Dollar Stamps sneak peeks for November (yes, I said November!!!). I also check out a lot of the challenges that are being posted, with good intentions to do them, but never seem to follow thru. Ah, such is life!

Love the non-traditional colors and the Raspberry Tart paper works perfectly with this card.

Very pretty with the pinks and raspberry. I like the scallop edge too.
