Joyful for the Paper Players

Happy Monday Peeps!!

Today I am sharing a card I made using the challenge this week at the The Paper Players.
This week it is a sketch challenge, and you know I love a good sketch!

I am really loving this new stamp set from Stampin Up called Joyful Christmas.
It has this fabulous cardinal image, that can be colored or it also has a solid image that can be stamped inside the outline of the cardinal. I used the solid image this time and I have to say I really like it. I was not sure when I got the set that I would like the solid image part, cos I like to color and thought I would be doing that more. But after using it on this card I may have just changed my mind.
I did use my water brush to blend it just slightly but that would not even be necessary except I am crazed!!!

The base of my card is Early Espresso and then the DSP I used is from the Merry Moments pack.

I used a piece of the Stampin Up corrugated paper to mat my main image. I really love this corrugated paper, it comes in Crumb cake and White, Really fun!!
I added a bit of linen thread and used a All is Calm Snowflake charm that is retired.
The sentiment is from the same set as the cardinal, don't you love the faded look of the sentiment and cardinal?

Thanks for stopping by today.
