Christmas Card Throwdown...June Color


 Joyous sky was done with water color paper and Distress inks.
On the spritzed paper I applied Distress worn lipstick and wilted violet with a large watercolor brush.
The base card is purple card stock with a layer of gold metallic paper.
The dried water color paper was taped on.
Using a strip of gold metallic paper and two Martha Stewart punch I made the village and attached it to the front of the card.
Under that I glued a strip of purple card stock.
Using another piece of the purple card stock I die cut the sentiment with a die from Stampin’ Up’s “Wondrous Wreath” and glued it to the card front.

Please join us for this is colorful challenge!

Hi there,

I saw your card at a challenge and fell in love with it and hence the visit. This card is a winner. I love the dreamy look it has and the colours are heavenly. As a result of all this, I am now your latest follower. Lol.
I like how you have expressed your thoughts about others copying your art... how big hearted is that.

Happy crafting,

Monica
