Peace and Joy

 This is a special post today.  A month or so ago, I was asked to be a Guest Designer for Cut It Up Challenges!! So, I'm designing for today's challenge: Tic Tac Toe:

The sponsor for the challenge is DRS Designs.
Here is the card I created:
I used digital versions of two different DRS Designs red rubber stamps that can be found in their store: "Holly Jingle Bells" and "Deco Peace and Joy Christmas Greetings."  I love these beautiful bells and the advantage of the digi stamps is that you can make them any size you want.  I wanted mine to be the accent for the sentiment so I printed them smaller.  The sentiment circle was a bit to bright white, so I brushed on a bit of Antique Linen Distress Ink to tone it down a little.  I finished the card with some red ribbon and some really sparkly clear gems.
I hope you will play along with us!  I can't wait to see what you create using this fun board!!
Oh, and thanks to Evelyn and the team for having me!

I love your traditional card, Heather! The circular frame reminds me of a crocheted edge and the image of bells is perfect. I find this card to be perfectly lovely. Thank you for playing along with us at Double Trouble #73.
