I love all paper crafts including mixed media, journaling and cards. I also dabble in papermaking, photography, fibre art, and altered books.

The Season of Joy

Paige had a neat idea for this week's challenge at Holly Jolly Christmas Challenges.  The idea is to create a card using something from the  first letter of your name.  I created my card with the theme of the Season of Joy for this challenge.  J is for Judy and J is for Joy. 

The digital image I used is from Arty Pants Digital Images.  I added a sentiment, a little bit of glitter, coloured with Copics, edged with Distress Inks and added a large Christmas ribbon and my card was complete.  

Thank you for stopping by today.  Hope you will join us at Holly Jolly.  We would like to see your creations.
