Joy this Christmas

Today's JustRite Friday Challenge #036 is to use this color combination plus you were to add an embellishment you have made.

Easel view

For this challenge I decided to make an easel card using the Justrite Christmas Nested Sentiments as the focal point.  This was stamped on ivory paper with Memento ink and then cut with a Spellbinder octagon die.  A Black frame was cut and mounted on the ivory paper.  The octagon was mounted on paper from Cosmo Cricket from their Mitten Weather Mini Deck.    The fleur was made  freehanded using Amuse pretty pearls black.  The flower was cut from the Cosmo Cricket paper and the ivory card stock with the large scallop dies from Spellbinder and crumbled.  The edges of the flower were distressed with Ranger Distress Black Soot and held together with an ivory pearl brad from American Crafts.  A clear button was mounted over a cute little snow lady colored with Copic markers from the JustRite Holiday Cheer set and placed on Cosmo Cricket paper to add a little festive touch to the card.  A Martha Stewart punch was used for the lattice on the base. Hope you enjoy.
