Joy


   Today being Friday there is a new challenge at QKR Stampede. The theme as usual is anything goes.
   Adding to my collection of Christmas cards I decided to make a shaped card using Tattered Lace's monumental moments joy die. I cut out the digi called solid manger and star using an oval die and attached it behind the rear 'o'. I glued paper printed using My Craft Studio CD ROM 'Winter hellebore' onto the front 'j' and 'y' and attached gold and red mirri onto the front 'o'. I then decorated the card with decoupaged winter hellebore cut using Tattered Lace dies.
