Christmas Joy

It's another Sensational Saturday at Sugar Creek Hollow!  This week the design team was challenged to create a card using lace.  I chose this beautiful sentiment "Christmas Joy".
I changed the digital ink color to red using Adobe Photoshop.  There's a great tutorial on how to do this on the CDAC site (listed on my sidebar).  I used one of my favorite DP's for this season, Basic Grey's "Jovial".  I adore the poinsettia DP and I've used Prima poinsettias to compliment the paper.  I punched holly leaves with my new MS punch and went crazy with the Crystal Effects!  I added dew drops for the holly berries, sponged distress ink around the edges of my sentiment and punched slots for my ribbon.  The ribbon above my sentiment is Tracy's Country Crinkle ribbon, adorned with flower jewelry from Prima.  She has this available in her store in all different colors!

We hope you will play along with our challenge this week!  Please make sure to visit the Sugar Creek Hollow store here and my team mate's blogs to see their creations, they are listed on my sidebar.
