Rustic Rejoicing.....

Hello everyone: There is a new challenge over at SHOPPING OUR STASH and this time my teammates and I want you to use Kraft cardstock in your creations.
Here is my card and I hope it inspires you to come and join us in the gallery.


This card is created using a lovely image from a Power Poppy set called RUSTIC REJOICING, I stamped it on a piece of watercolor paper with Versafine black ink, clear heat embossed it and colored it with SU markers and re-inkers, then I added it to a folded Kraft card base.
I added a bit of Wink of Stella to the ribbon, I hope you can see it, this shimmery stuff is hard to photograph. I die cut the watercolor panel with a Spellbinders die called "Majestic Labels 25". I also added the corner dies from a set from Cherry Lynn I found in my stash of left over embellishments.

**********************************************************************

This is how the INSIDE of my card looks like.


The sentiment and Jingle Bell are from the set, the lacy border is from a retired SU set called "Delicate Details"

I hope you stop by the SHOPPING OUR STASH challenge blog and check out my team mates beautiful and creative projects and join us in the gallery.

I'd like to play with the following challenges.

I just love this! Great composition and wonderful use of color. I want to reach out and touch those pine cones so the tactile and organic elements work very, very well!
