NEW--Create Joy from Simon Says Stamp

Hello friends!
http://www.shareasale.com/r.cfm?u=1083364&b=199868&m=24698&afftrack=&urllink=simonsaysstamp%2Ecom%2Fcategory%2FShop%2DSimon%2DReleases%2DShare%2DJoy
Have you heard? Simon Says Stamp has another new release! This time, Create Joy is all about winter and holiday-themed products (click here)! I was lucky to get a few items to play with and today's card is from one of the new stamp sets called "for to us". The handwriting and elements are absolutely gorgeous!

I adore the floral elements in this set. I embossed the flower and vine in gold and then fussy cut them out. As for the background, I used MISTI to do the multi-colored stamping. 

 I wanted to focus on the colors--red and green. So I used accent colors-gold, white and black in this. The coloring was done with my small set of Zig markers.

In order to give this card a proper presence, I added foam for the entire white panel. The Scalloped Border from Pretty Pink Posh really makes the design softer and sweeter, in my view.

Lastly, I want to give a shout out to a few super fabulous blog friends who constantly comment and encourage me. This blog is not the same without your feedback. Thank you, conil, Mimijudy1975, Nora N., and Harriet...etc. You really make me want to be a better stamper/blogger.
Thanks for stopping by!

Beautiful multi-colored stamping, Virginia! I love how you made the sentiment the star of the show, too...Gorgeous card!

Aaaaw...the reason we comment is because you bring us such pleasure. This card is a perfect example. Love this new set, and better yet, love how you used it...fussy cutting that beautifully colored sprig couldn't have been easy. Using the scalloped card front is a brilliant idea. That touch of black really pops.
