Hello Ladies,

 This week over at Joans, the challenge was do up to 3 card, use simple or detailed cards using something sold at:, red and green colors and the new technique she showed us on her blog (taught by Pam Sparks ) called paper piecing.  The was a little challenging but oh so much fun. So I got busy Saturday night and managed three cards. So here goes #1

I used red and green card stock embossed with eBosser "Polka Dot" embossing folder, added for the Sentiment "Elegant JOY" by HFC with versa mark stamp pad and used white embossing powder. I love the way this word looks (old fashion elegance).  I wanted to make sure the little bow didn't move around so I cut two slits either side of the J and fed the bow through and tied, then layered the card stock. Next added self sticking lace at the bottom.  I cut three Timeless Amour in white, green and red felt paper. I used the tech and added green and red to the white. Added HFC poinsettia's and leaves. Poinsettia's are from vellum stamped in white embossing powder with their yellow centers of flower soft.

WOWZA!! I guess I should have started my commenting with card #1 but I'm Polish and have a tendency to do things a bit backwards!
This card is BEAUTIFUL!! Love your choice of patterns & design. And, how clever you are with that bow ... I will keep it in mind (but doubt it will stay in my mind long ... old timers ya know!) ... very clever!
Well done on all three creations Judy and it's so good to see you making time to play with cards!
See you soon! YEAH!!!
