spreading some joy

what a great card i have to share today! it makes me smile, it's bright and light and happy! ok, enough, on to the card!

i made this card for the 2 sketches 4 you challenge (see below) and the etsy inpsired challenge (my inspiration project from capturing creativity is also below):


ok, and 2s4y + etsy inspiration = my card!

isn't it happy! i know it's a little nutty to use a thank you card as the inspiration and then make a christmas card, but those colors were just too vibrant and happy - i had to use them for christmas!
i cut out a circle and put all different shapes/sizes of red buttons below to show through. and then i made that "O" an ornament (i used some black metal wire i had). i stamped the "J" and "Y" in black and then went over them with some black glitter, just to make them stand on their own a little more.

i used my circle punch to create the 'scallops' and then some red ribbon down the middle makes it look like a present!

so that's it! i hope it made you smile too!
