Joy to the World Christmas Card

I have made two variations of this card. I cannot take credit for the design. I scraplifted it from an Archiver's flyer that I got in the mail. The stamp is from Daily Bread Devotionals. The rest is just cardstock and Bakers Twine. The bottom piece is ran through an embossing folder. Here are the pics:


I made this for the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog. We had to use pink for this challenge. I used white perfect pearls on the stamp (stamped w/ perfect medium). It didn't turn out very dark, so I will have to do something different I think next time. I don't have any winter magnolia stamps, so I used Sweetie Tilda. I placed her so that she is next to the tree with her gifts. The gifts are just squares of paper tied with bakers twine. I am entering this card in the following:

I did another version without Tilda using normal red and white. I like the clearer image. I stamped with Memento Lady Bug ink. Before it dried, I sprinkled it with clear embossing powder. I placed some rhinestones on it and used my clear stardust pen to outline the stars and big words.
