Joy to the World

Sorry, my brain is fried so I can't think of original, interesting post titles. ;) Let's cut to the chase and get right to the card...

I didn't have any Christmas sentiment stamps small enough for the tag when I made this, but since I recently got some new Hero Arts goodies (yay!), I might switch this tag out - not clear enough for me. Tied up with Ivy ribbon.

A lovely Santa image along with some metal snowflake knick-knacks and pearls.

Used an old rub-on here in the corner, along with some stitching and ink distressing.

Card made for these challenges:
Little Red Wagon (Vintage Christmas), PTT (Holiday Greetings), My Time to Craft (Vintage Christmas), Creative Card Crew (Tis the Season), Pollycraft (Christmas Fun), Kaboodle Doodles (Colors of Christmas), Simon Says Stamp (Christmas Photomontage), The Paper Variety (Christmas song - mine is Joy to the World), Auld Sentiments (Winter holiday sentiments) and CIC (Christmas)

Thanks so much for stopping in and have a blessed weekend!
