peace joy love

Hi ya, all! =) Here is a card that I made for the Joyful Creations challenge over at Inspiration Journal.

This month's challenge is to incorporate the word JOY in your projects. This should be an easy challenge for this time of the year, right? =)

I gathered up the more festive/holiday-ish images from FOLKal Points, Swanky Snowdudes and Santa Paws sets, then stamped them randomly to create the background. Here is a tip: Never stamp an image straight. If you stamp anything straight on a background like this, they'd look like the focal point and the eye would expect a "story" from them which really isn't what you want here. I learned that the hard way and the evidence is on the back of the card. =) The sentiment phrases are from Joyful Greetings set.

That's all I have. Don't forget to submit your Joyful Creations here for a chance to win 50 Emporium Dollars to use in the Inspiration Emporium Store! Or you can use discount code wonderland at check out to receive 10% off your entire order! =)

Have a fabulous day and thanks for stopping by!
