Joy to the World

What a Lovely weekend, burning the cinnamon candle, listening to holiday music! So I was just "browsing" (window shopping) the other night and stopped by Mo's and this new set called my name!(teehee) Today was the day to color and create... Really had to hunt for the "just right" sketch, which I was delighted to find over at Pink{INK}Sketch and it worked perfectly for a gatefold. Found some old Karen Foster DP, rhinestones and the perfect shades of bazzil to play with. The challenge over at Mo's challenge is inspired by a song, hence the name of the card - love the song Joy To The World... and here ya go - I had so much fun - you should'a seen my workspace, musta used over 30 copics :)P.S. my fave part of the card, is the wick added with my zig to the lamp candle, along with the rhinestone for the flame :) :)

Wishing you a "Joy To The World" Day! Thanks for stopping in...

RECIPE: Mo Manning-images; Pink{INK} Sketch; Karen Foster, Kaiser Craft-DPs; Kaiser craft-rhinestones; cuttlebug folder; sizzix-circles and flourish dies; bazzill CS; copics.
