Always be Joyful

 

 
It's my second week as guest designer for Paper Smooches and I'm having so much fun. The October sets are absolutely wonderful and I can't stop playing with them. The baubles on my card were actually made for another design I had planned in my head, but while I was working on the background for that I had my trimmed baubles in a little pile on my desk. When I saw them there I thought they looked cool and fun that way and I knew I wanted to try to recreate that "scene" on a card. This is the result:



 



 
 

The stamps are from this perfect Christmas Holiday set called Merry Motifs:
 
 
Have a great day, hugs, Karin

I used distress ink as coloring media and I'm entering it for Moxie Fab World's coloring media challenge.
