Joy At Christmas

Well I am well on my way to getting my Christmas card stamp-a-stacks ready and this one may be part of it.  I will have to see how many more I can come up with using this stamp set.

Actually the inspiration for the following card came from the Stamping 411 sketch this week.  I do love their sketches and try to play along every week, but there are times that I miss out.  So here is the card I made using their sketch!

As soon as I saw this stamp set in the holiday mini, I knew I had to have it.  And, this is the first time I have used it and this sketch was perfect for it.  I love the light in this view.

Here is another view where the light is not quite as bright.

I like both of them, but can't quite figure out the one I like the best which is why I posted both of them.

All items used are Stampin' Up!
Stamp Sets: The Sounding Joy, Perfect Punches
Card Stock: Whisper White, Night of Navy
