Creative Belli Challenge #99

Good morning everyone and welcome to another Creative Belli Challenge!!! The challenge this 2 weeks is to use an old that has been sitting around for a long time collecting dust!! Be sure to use something old and forgotten from your stash, too...the Belli Challenge is all about using your old stuff and forgotten treasures!!!

I used an old Inkadinkado Christmas stamp that I just love....stamped it with Riding Hood Red onto Pure Luxury Ivory cardstock and added glitter to the word Joy. Sewing and distressing were done around the edges of the background layers to add a little shabby vintage feel and lace, poinsettias, leaves, gold cording, old gold metal buttons and gold pearls finish it off. The wonderful sketch is from Jen's I{heart}2stamp blog.
Stamps: Inkadinkado
Paper: Pure Luxury Ivory, Pure Luxury Lipstick Red, Good Cheer dp by October Afternoon
Ink: Riding Hood Red
Accessories: Lace, Sewing Machine, Gold Pearls, Gold Metal Buttons, Gold Cording, Prima Poinsettias and Leaves, Glitter
