Happy Friday everyone. My card today is based on the Paper Players Challenge #66 (add music), the Picture Perfect Creations Color Challenge #74 and the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #5. I chose The Sounding Joy stamp set that has the words to Joy to the World as my music muse. Green is my favorite color so the Picture Perfect challenge was good but that combination of greens had me really stumped.
I chose Garden Green textured card stock for the base. A piece of Pear Pizzazz designer paper was run through the Big Shot with the Snow Burst embossing folder.
When I did that, the white core of the designer paper showed through giving it a neat look. I spritzed this layer with Frost White shimmer paint mixed with alcohol and attached it to the card front. I took a piece
of Lucky Limeade card stock, sponged the edges with Lucky Limeade ink, spritzed it with the shimmer paint, matted it with a piece of Garden Green card stock and added it to the card. The lyrics were stamped using Garden Green ink on a piece of Whisper White card stock that was cut out with the Circle Scissors Plus. The word Joy from the same stamp set was heat embossed on a piece of white vellum card stock cut out with the Circle Scissors using VersaMark, Lucky Limeade ink and clear embossing powder. I attached the vellum to the lyrics with Garden Green brads and popped this layer up with dimensionals and glue dots. I made a bow with white satin ribbon and attached it to the card with a glue dot. A lot of green even for me!! I hope your weekend is off to a good start. I'll see you soon.
