Hi!  It's Friday again--boy does time go by fast!  Time for another challenge from Christmas Stampin' All Year Long.  This week's challenge is to include 3 of the following elements on your creation:

M - Metal
E - Embossing Folder
R - Ribbon
R - Rub on
Y - Yellow

C - Chipboard
H - Heat Embossing
R - Rhinestone
I -distressing Ink
S - Sticker
T - Twine
M - Markers
A - Acrylic
S - Stickles  

Our sponsor this week is Beccy's Place.  I know there's a prize and it's going to be fabulous, but you're going to have to go to the CSAYL blog for the details. 

Visit My Digital Store

There are so many adorable images in Beccy's shop; I chose this image, Joy, to work with this week.  It's so beautiful.
 I added the "Wishing You" part to make a complete sentiment (and, ok, really, it was to get in the heat embossing element of our challenge this week)

I was trying to get a good picture of the gold ink on the letters and the gold glitter in the center of the flower and just as I was going to snap the picture, the sun came out from behind the clouds and it was perfect!  The elements I used are R--ribbon, H--heat embossing, and M--Markers.  Hop on over to the CSAYL blog to get all the details and then come play along.  Can't wait to see what options you use on your cards.

Sarah Hurley--All that glitters is gold (I have gold ink on the letters and gold glitter on the center of the poinsettias)
C.R.A.F.T. #211--Christmas
Charisma Cardz #23--Digis only
Southern Girls--Give it an upper cut and punch it out! (use punches or diecuts)
Crafty Ribbons #48--anything goes with ribbon

Stamps: Beccy's Place "Joy" digi; Verve "Merry and Bright" sentiment
