Paper Creations Ink Christmas Challenge

The theme of the new challenge at Paper Creations Ink is Christmas! So you can create and post a new holiday card and link it for a chance at a great prize. Our sponsor is Sassy Studio Designs and they provided the design team with some fun digis to play with. I chose Santa's Helper and did a little paper piecing and coloring before cutting into a circle and adding a piece of velum to soften the image. The base white card was embossed with a Sizzix embossing folder and a larger circle cut before adding a red piece to back of the front flap. I used two border punches to make the Joy border and competed the card with some pearls.

I am entering this card in the challenge at Glitter Geeks to show Christmas Shopping.
