Joy to the World!

   Today I am going to share my Christmas card with you that I made to send out. I have been trying a lot more clean and elegant cards lately. I like to embellish my cards especially with a little sparkle. I keep a bit of sparkle but the over all design is clean and simple.

   The colors I choose are not traditional Christmas colors, and the picture isn't the best quality. I die cut my letters with Clark's ABC die from Lawn Fawn. The Sentiment is from Lawn Fawn's Wish You Were Here set. I cut the stamp to get the wording I wanted; no my stamps did not scream when I cut it. The glitter fun foam is actually a lime green that matches the globe, but I was losing my good lighting for the day so the color in the picture is a little strange.  The inside of my card says: "May the  glory of Christ's birth bring you joy and hope at Christmas time and always." The stamp for the inside is a rubber stamp by Stampabilities that I found at Hobby Lobby.  Believe it or not that was the first rubber stamp I have ever bought.  This is my entry for the Lawnscaping Challenge #96 Merry Christmas and I also entring it in Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge and their anything goes challenge. I hope that you enjoy it, even if it isn't fancy. Let's keep focused on what Christmas is all about: The joy that Christ brought when he was born as a tiny baby in Bethlehem and the eternal joy that he brings to our hearts when we know him as Lord and Savior.
