Christmas Joy

Good morning!!! I am still at The Trading Days in Canton, Texas but I did schedule this to post today....I am still making flat Christmas cards for easy mailing and I wanted to share this with you...I used one of my favorite Taylored Expressions sets called Wings of Joy!! The image was paper pieced with the same October Afternoon Good Cheer dp that was also used in the background. The bird, holly, and bow were all stamped on scrap white, colored with Copics, cutout, and glued to the stamped image. The diecut doily, ribbon, and sewing finish it off.
Recipe: Stamps: Wings of Joy from Taylored Expressions/
Paper: Vanilla, Riding Hood red, October Afternoon's Good Cheer
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: Nestabilities Ovals, Ribbon, Papertrey Ink Doily Die, Sewing Machine, Copics 

Thanks sooo much for stopping by....I will be back tomorrow for the Fall Hop...stay tuned!!!!
