Joan's Gardens Weekly Challenge

It is time for a new challenge at Joan's Garden.  We have had requests to include Christmas cards in the weekly challenges to help you get your cards made before the holidays.  

For my card I used a piece of Kaiser Craft 6 1/2" design paper from the "Turtle Dove" pad.  The pretty frame was die cut using the Memory Box, "Palace Oval Frame" die, using white card stock.  To give it a pretty glitter finish, I used the Viva Decor "Moss Green Metallic" 3-D Stempel-Farbe on the outer portion of the frame.  The gold oval was colored with Viva Decor Gold Rub-on. If you haven't used these metallic products, I'm sure you will especially love them on your Christmas cards.   The center scalloped part of the frame was sponged with Tea Dye Distress Ink.  The sentiment is from the JustRite "Merry & Bright Christmas Inner Thoughts" stamp set.  The poinsettias were created with the Cheery Lynn "Poinsettia Strip" and the Holly flourish was die cut using the Cheery Lynn "Holly Flourish" die.  

I hope you will join us in our challenge this month and wish you luck in the random drawing for the weekly prize.
