Joy To The World

As you know, I received my Flourishes stamps order from their Black Friday sale, and I wish I had placed a bigger order from them!! :( In my haste to open them and create, I needed to come up with some ideas, so I made a card with the help of this challenge sketch from Creative Sketches.

This was a small challenge for me, as it's pretty minimal. So I decided this one was going to have be open to interpretation for my card :)

I used my new Flourishes "Alleliuia Angel" and the "Christmas Music" background stamp, and I really LOVE the combination so much, that I already have another card in the works with these two combined! :)

I stamped the "Christmas Music" background in Memento "Desert Sand" so it would be light. I colored the Angel in with my Tombows, then pulled out my new Spellbinders Lace die and diecut out some music, then added that to the bottom. I sponged some "Bundled Sage" & Tea Dye" Distress inks around the edges of the cream paper.

For the inside I used the "Christmas Blessings" sentiment from the "Christmas Music" stamp set, then used an Inkadinado stamp for the swirling snow.

I really love my new stamps and hope to be able to buy some more soon! Flourishes stamps are just so addictive and I love how elegant they are :)
I love the sketch and thank goodness I  figured out a way to join in on the fun!! :)
