Joy...CR84FN43 Week #2 54

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, November 26, 2011 @ 9:55 PM | , , ,

Hello there! Here we are already into week #2 of the CR84FN43 Color Challenge! EEKS! Time is flying by! We will be celebrating Scott's 50th birthday in a few weeks! :) He doesn't look a day over 40 and doesn't act a day over 20! :) LOL
I made another Christmas card using this "earthly" color combo.
I pulled out the Waltzingmouse Vintage Ornaments set, inked up the beautiful polka dot ornament, stamped the Joy sentiment in the center then cut using a Spellbinders Heirloom Ornaments die template. Finished it off with some sugary glitter:
For sketch inspiration, I played along with the current Inkspirations Challenge:

Looking forward to seeing your 50th Male Card, I have a card to make for my son who will be 41 on the 12th. Like most card makers I hate doing male cards.
