Joy to the World

Wire Wrapture · Post RI--inspiration photo template Posting as Heather Happy Wednesday!!  It's time for another challenge from The House That Stamps.  This week we have a beautiful inspiration photo for you:
No photo description available.
And here is the card I created:
I went with both the colors and the elements in the image.  I stamped the Joy sentiment and then water colored the globe for a soft look.  For a fun touch, I used a pen to draw on a string to make the globe look like an ornament.  Then I stamped the pine branch image repeatedly around the outside of the panel.  I sponged on some antique linen Distress ink around the edges as well.  I stamped, colored and fussy cut the pine cones and added a little burlap twine bow.

Thanks for stopping by!  Make sure you head on over to The House blog to see what the rest of the Design Team has done with this photo.  And if you "need" any of the stamps I used, check out my 10% off your entire order coupon code over in my lift sidebar.
