Joyful Christmas

Happy Wednesday Stampers! Hope your week is going well! What a beautiful feeling to be in the Christmas spirit. The other day I watched the CMA Country Christmas special and I can really listen to Christmas music all year long.

I'm back today with a new card that I created by combining two blog challenges. A color challenge from Fab Friday using Coastal Cabana, Real Red and Gumball Green and a sketch from Retro Sketches.

This is my creation:

I really like the way it came out because I stepped out of my comfort zone again, this time by creating a square card. I usually always create a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card base so it was fun creating this one. I finally purchased the Joyful Christmas stamp set and I'm so glad that I did! I used gold embossing powder to bring out the lines in the poinsettia. The smaller stems, I colored them on Whisper White and cut them out then popped them up with dimensionals.  I felt like I should add more to my card, but finally decided to leave it alone. 

What about you, have you created different size cards?  Do you have a usual size of your cards?

Thanks for stopping by today, until next time.
